education-pollAs part of eSchool News‘ mission to engage our readers with current hot-button topics in education, the editors at eSN are including polls in our daily stories. From what you think about training urban school principals to using Google Helpouts, we want to know your thoughts!

For example, we were surprised, and encouraged, to learn that when it comes to training urban school principals, 92 percent of readers who took our poll said that they would rather urban school principals keep their job and receive training to better handle urban school issues, rather than have these principals fired and replaced with pre-trained principals. [Read: “What makes a successful urban principal?“]

Also, it seems our readers are certainly tech-savvy! Ninety percent of those polled said they would use, or apply for, Google Helpouts. [Read: “Google Helpouts will connect experts, info-seekers.“]
