New American Majority
The “New Education Majority” national poll was commissioned to explore how Black and Latino parents and families view the American education system’s success in educating their children. It is meant to start a conversation about education policy changes that are truly reflective of what Black and Latino parents and families want, rather than to find out what Black and Latino parents think about the policies that currently dominate education policy debates.
It is our view that the findings in the 2nd annual “New Education Majority” poll should be a clarion call for advocates and policymakers who must come to terms with the fact that for any education policy to be successful, it must be responsive to the needs of the children who make up a majority of public school students in America.
