A recent national poll conducted by Lake Research Partners has identified a new and growing constituency of voters in America who advocate building capacities of the imagination in public education.1 This population of self-identified voters will readily and strongly support public education that answers the call for innovation and goes beyond its current focus on the “so-called” basics to meet the changing demands of the 21st century. The finding is consistent with aggregated findings from polling across a two-year period including the recent Partnership for 21st Century Skills poll and focus groups conducted by Marmillion + Company, Washington, DC, which confirmed the strength of America’s desire for imagination in learning. Moreover, within the growing constituency is a more intensely committed group of very likely voters ripe for mobilization – an “imagine nation.”
