NEWS BRIEFS: Public Confidence in Higher Education Reaches All-Time Low (Gallup)

FROM GALLUP: “In 2015, most Americans in all key subgroups expressed confidence in higher education, except for independents (48%). By 2018, though, confidence had fallen across all groups, with the largest drop, 17 percentage points, among Republicans. In the latest measure, confidence once again fell across the board, but Republicans sank the most — 20 points to 19%, the lowest of any group. Confidence among adults without a college degree and those aged 55 and older dropped nearly as much as Republicans since 2018.”
