Public Agenda

Nebraskans Weigh In

On Essential Education Opportunities for All Students


Public Agenda was asked by the Nebraska State Board of Education and the Nebraska Department of Education to help design and implement a public engagement process that would allow a cross-section of the state's citizens to comment on the Board's concept of an Essential Education. Toward that end, Public Agenda conducted focus groups and community conversations with over 370 parents, students, educators and members of the general public from roughly 25 districts throughout the state. Our findings are summarized in this report.
