WASHINGTON, D.C. -- Americans have become less content in recent years with the quality of the nation's K-12 education. The 42% who say they are satisfied today is the lowest measured in the past two decades by one percentage point and the second-lowest reading in Gallup's 23-year trend. Americans' satisfaction with schools was at a near-record high of 51% in 2019 before dropping slightly each year since.

At the same time, parents of children attending kindergarten through grade 12 remain largely content with their oldest child's education. The 80% who are completely or somewhat satisfied is slightly improved from the 73% measured a year ago and exceeds the average of 76% that Gallup has recorded since 2001.

Gallup has tracked Americans' and parents' particular perspectives on K-12 education annually each August as part of its Work and Education survey. The latest installment was conducted Aug. 1-23 as students were getting back to school in some parts of the country and enjoying the last days of summer vacation in others.
