Reality Check, a joint project of Public Agenda and Education Week, is the annual report on the progress of the academic-standards movement and the impact of reform efforts on schools and the work world as seen from the perspectives of education’s key stakeholders. The Pew Charitable Trusts and the GE Fund provide support for the project.

The three previous editions of Reality Check appeared in Education Week on Feb. 16, 2000: Public Agenda: Reality Check; also

  • in Quality Counts 1999: Reality Check, Jan. 11, 1999; and
  • in Quality Counts 1998: Public Agenda: Reality Check, Jan. 8, 1998.

Public Agenda, a nonprofit, nonpartisan research organization based in New York City, designed the surveys on which this report is based and provided this summary of the findings.

The report was prepared by Jean Johnson, Ann Duffett, Tony Foleno, Patrick Foley, and Steve Farkas.

More findings from the Reality Check surveys are available online at www.publicagenda.org.

For more information on this or other Public Agenda research, visit Public Agenda Online at www.publicagenda.org. In-depth information, including survey findings, news digests, and trend data, is available on education and nearly two dozen other public-policy issues.
