The Pittsburgh Today Education Survey

Public schools educate 115,000 students in grades kindergarten through 12 in Allegheny County, the most populous county in southwestern Pennsylvania. For the first time, a comprehensive survey provides insight into how residents view public education in their local schools, their thoughts about key education issues and the experiences of those whose children are taught in public school classrooms.

The Pittsburgh Today Regional Education Survey was conducted by PittsburghTODAY and the University Center for Social and Urban Research at the University of Pittsburgh (UCSUR) in October 2019. Nearly 2,300 Allegheny County residents identified from the UCSUR Research Registry participated. And survey data were adjusted to make the sample representative of the demographic characteristics of the county.

The responses offer the broad perspectives of country residents as a whole, as well as a glimpse of how race, age, level of education, gender, income and whether people live in the City of Pittsburgh or the suburbs tend to color views and experiences related to local public schools.
