Knox County residents should not be surprised if they receive a phone call late this week or early next week from a company called Bryant Research. At the Knoxville Chamber’s request, Bryant Research is conducting a telephone survey to gather thoughts and attitudes toward public education in the county.
“We want to understand what Knox County residents think about the future of our school district, jobs in the region, and what action today is appropriate to take in order to secure our future,” Knoxville Chamber President and CEO Mike Edwards said.
Results will be shared with policy-makers to understand how residents perceive changes in education, how to guide activities and messages in the future, and ultimately to improve public school outcomes. The results are expected to be tabulated in the next couple months.
“The Chamber obviously plans to continue pushing for cost-effective improvements to public education in Knox County. These survey results will let us know where the community stands on many education related issues,” Edwards said.
Private donations to the Knoxville Chamber funded all costs associated with this survey effort.
