PDK/Gallup Poll – About the poll

About the poll

Highly respected and widely followed by the media, the PDK/Gallup poll is a reliable resource for families, education professionals, researchers, and policy makers. For 46 consecutive years, PDK’s goal in publishing the poll is to support a common desire to improve U.S. schools.

PDK’s partner for all 46 years is Gallup, the foremost name in polling in America and around the world. The poll is a scientifically based survey of more than 1,000 Americans 18 years and older. The report of the poll publishes all questions exactly as they were asked during telephone polling, which occurred in May-June 2014. A method statement is included in the poll report.

The PDK/Gallup poll is financed solely by the Phi Delta Kappa Educational Foundation, permitting PDK to offer an independent and unbiased report of American public opinion about its public schools.

Testimonial

PDK International Study Tours bring together two things I’m passionate about: education and travel. The mix of school visits and conversations with cultural experiences has offered me the chance to see new places and think about education in different ways.
