School Policy Preferences in the UK

3 March 2021

Nuffield Fellow Ben Ansell and co-authors, including Associate Member Jane Gingrich, examine their findings on policy approval from their two-wave survey (October 2020 and February 2021) in the UK.

Among their questions on policy approval, were two questions about schools policy. They found that on the whole, people were more supportive of closing the schools in February than they were of opening them in October. They also correlated these answers with demographic and other information gathered in the survey.
