Just 6% of Canadians feel schools deserve an A: survey

While Canadians believe strongly in public education, a report Friday revealed only six per cent feel their schools would score an A, while the proportion of Canadians who feel confident in the system has slipped dramatically from numbers gathered in 1984.
Still, the Canadian Education Association's Public Attitudes Toward Education study showed that even though fewer than half of Canadians (45 per cent) now express confidence in their schools, more Canadians (60 per cent) feel satisfied with the school system in general.
Back in 1984, when the CEA first asked Canadians to assess their confidence in community schools, more than three-quarters of Canadians felt confident.
The dramatic decline in confidence in 23 years, combined with an upward trend in satisfaction, suggests that Canadians believe school systems are improving but don't believe in the sustainability of those improvements, the non-profit group said.

But most people are satisfied with public school system Hear ,see,speak no evil maybe.WHY ? your omments please....
