Media Advisory: Achieve's Sandy Boyd to Discuss 2013 PDK/Gallup Poll Results

Washington, DC - August 19, 2013 - Sandra Boyd, Achieve COO and Senior Vice President, will appear on a panel to discuss the results of the 2013 PDK/Gallup Poll  of the Public's Attitudes Toward the Public Schools on Wednesday, August 21, 2013, from 3:00 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. at The Gallup Building, 901 F Street, NW, Washington, DC.

Ms. Boyd will compare the results with the extensive Common Core polling and surveys Achieve has conducted over the past two years. The results of Achieve's first two polls (here and here) found that the public is still not aware of the standards, but receptive to the states adoption of common, college- and career-ready standards.

Achieve will again be conducting more Common Core polling and releasing results this fall which will include trend data based on our previous work.
