From Virginia Schools Insider: Fairfax parents participated in their first-ever “trust and confidence” survey, which is slated to become a yearly attempt to quantify the community’s perception of school leadership. Approximately 10,000 people responded to the survey.
About 81 percent of parents and 63 percent of non-parent taxpayers said they agreed or strongly agreed that Fairfax’s school system is a trustworthy institution. But only 39 percent of non-parents believe FCPS manages its budget responsibly, and 39 percent of parents believe that the quality of education has improved in Fairfax over the past two years.
