Jonathan Rochkind is Vice President
and Director of Research for Education
Insights at Public
Agenda. He has worked on designing, analyzing, and reporting research
on a variety of topics including education, perceptions of racial and
ethnic identity, U.S. foreign policy, health and other social issues.
For over 30 years, Public Agenda
has been providing unbiased and unparalleled research that bridges the
gap between American leaders and what the public really thinks about
issues ranging from education to foreign policy to immigration to religion
and civility in American life. Nonpartisan and nonprofit, Public Agenda
was founded by social scientist and author Daniel Yankelovich and former
Secretary of State Cyrus Vance in 1975. Public Agenda’s two-fold mission
is to help:
- American leaders
better understand the public’s point of view.
- Citizens know more
about critical policy issues so they can make thoughtful, informed decisions.
