Just 1 in 3 Americans satisfied with higher ed, report finds

“Only about one-third of adults said U.S. higher education was “fine how it is,” though their responses mark a small increase over previous years’ findings. In 2018, just 27% of respondents were satisfied with the sector.  Other polls have found a similar lack of trust in American higher education.  A 2018 Gallup poll, for instance, found that around half (48%) of respondents had “a great deal” or “quite a lot” of confidence in the sector, down from 57% who said the same three years prior. Much of that decline is attributable to Republicans, whose reported confidence in the sector fell 17% from 2015 to 2018. “
