The article discusses public opinion polls on U.S. President Barack Obama's education reforms after his first 17 months in office. Possible reasons for a decrease in public support include views on the reformation of low-achieving schools and the lack of public visibility for education spending, particularly under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. Evidence of support is suggested in the data for the administration's ideas on teacher accountability and charter schools.
