In this season of “polling” people on candidates and issues, Operation Kids has been polling people on another topic, their children. In our efforts to benefit the Whole Child, we are always interested in what issues are occupying the minds of those who care about kids.
The survey has now reached a statistical “critical mass.” With over 1,200 respondents, we are now gaining a clearer picture as to how you would prioritize the issues listed. While we would like the poll to stay out there for a while longer, some of the results to-date are interesting.
The top issues at this point, reaching a response rate of 40% or higher are:
1. Alcohol & drug abuse 56.6%
2. Issues surrounding teenage sex including pregnancy 49 %
3. Neighborhood & school violence and bullying 48 %
4. Education quality and access 45%
I have some thoughts about the results thus far, but what do you think?
