TAKE 10 FOR PUBLIC EDUCATION
The Alabama State Department of Education is conducting a statewide survey concerning some of the perceptions on public education in the state. The compilation of this data will be instrumental in the development of a Strategic Plan for Alabama’s public schools. The TAKE 10 FOR PUBLIC EDUCATION survey was designed to allow officials at the ALSDE to have a glimpse into the vantage point of Alabamians from every walk of life. The survey may only take 10 minutes to complete, but the impact on the department’s Strategic Plan will resonate for years to come. Take the ALSDE survey.
