64% Say New Technology Good For Education, but 68% Say High Schools Are Worse Than Before

Sixty-four percent (64%) of voters believe new technology has been good for education while just 18% believe it has been bad. At the same time, a ScottRasmussen.com survey found that 68% believe high schools today are worse than they were 20 years ago.

Twenty-five percent (25%) would want their child to be a high school teacher while 48% would not.

Seventy percent (70%) believe high school teachers should be paid more. However, most voters underestimate how much such teachers earn. Fifty-five percent (55%) estimate teachers earn $50,000 a year or less. Twelve percent (12%) correctly estimated the average salary for a high school teacher is about $60,000. Eleven percent (11%) think they make more than that while 23% are not sure.
