Clermont County Education Survey, 2009
The 2009 Clermont County Education Survey was developed as a practical method for soliciting the perspectives of county residents so that their views and concerns can be included in the County's strategic efforts.
Overall, responses suggest that Clermont County’s registered voters are receptive, thoughtful, and, on the whole, well-informed. The Economics Center found the following survey results particularly significant:
- A majority also see a connection between a good education and future quality of life. Most voters believe that students are “not very likely” or “not likely at all” to get a good job and a comfortable lifestyle without getting a college degree.
- Many voters do not perceive that the performance of schools in their local district matches up to this standard.
between schools and career preparation:
- While nine in ten (90%) believe it is “very important” that their local schools do a good job of preparing students for a successful career, less than one in six (16%) strongly agree that their school district actually accomplishes this, and
- Only a little more than one in five (22%) strongly agree that they do a good job of preparing students for college.
