POLL: Americans’ Trust in Public Schooling is Plummeting
In a new Gallup poll, only 28% of Americans have a “great deal” or “quite a lot” of confidence in government schooling.
As Breccan Thies of Breitbart News noted, this steep decline in trust in the public education system is the second-lowest all time record. The lowest figure on record was in 2014, when it stood at 26%.
For perspective, this figure stood at 41% in 2020, while this number was at 29% in 2019.
There is a notable partisan divide on the issue of trust in education. Democrats have a “great deal” or “quite a lot” of confidence in the system at 43% confidence in the public school system. This figure still represents a drop from 48% in 2020.
By contrast, Republican support for government schooling declined from 34% to 14% in this same time frame. Only 29% of Independent voters have trust in public education.
The introduction of critical race theory — anti-white hate — and gender ideology has largely politicized education nationwide. These new developments have made conservatives nationwide rethink their support for public schooling.
Some more enterprising members of the populist Right have used growing discontent with the education system to shake up school boards and push back against the wokification of the education system.
Overall, the modern education system works against the traditional Right. A thousand flowers bloom approach — defunding government schools, taking control of the school boards, promoting home-schooling and private schooling, etc.— will be needed to break the monopoly of government schooling.
This is one institution that must be undermined if we want America to have any semblance of right-wing culture left.
