      Poll shows most U.S. parents happy with schools

      {}A new survey indicates that a majority of parents in the United States with children in public school systems would rate the quality of their children's schools as above average. Among those polled, 66 percent of parents would rate the quality of their child's school as above average or excellent. However, looking deeper in the demographics shows that minority parents are more likely to believe their children's school is average or worse.The study was released by Vox Populi Polling. The sample size for the survey was 810 parents with school-aged children, taken from a list of registered voters. The margin of error is plus or minus 3.4%. The survey also showed that 43 percent of parents would give their child's teacher an "A" grade for their performance in the classroom. Also 48 percent of parents believe that students who graduate from high school are prepared with skills for college and to enter the work force.
