WASHINGTON (AP) — Minority and low-income parents are more likely to see serious problems in their kids' schools than those who are affluent or white.
That's according to an Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research Poll.
The poll finds overall positive impressions of schools and teachers among parents. But there are deep divisions by income, education level and race in terms of how parents see schools, and in how they see their own influence on their kids' education.
Nonwhite parents are more likely to say kids are getting a better education than they did, and also to say they have greater influence over their kids' education.
At the same time, black parents are more likely than whites to say their school suffers from inequality in funding and inadequate opportunities for the arts.
