Make an Impact on Education in North Carolina

submitted by wellsofjoy on Friday, October 29 at 4:09 PM

Marketing Research a/k/a BUS 462 is a popular course at NCSU. A cumulative research project is a standard requirement and is a useful tool for preparing students for the workplace. Research projects range from surveying respondents on alchohol use to voting rights. Many organizations have benefitted from NCSU's research, such as Lowe's Home Improvement, Planned Parenthood and the Department of Public Instruction, to name a few.

There is a current on-line research effort underway that deals with education in North Carolina. The results of the survey will be used by the NC Dept. of Public Instruction in shaping future advertising efforts to improve education state-wide.

Do you have 5-10 minutes to participate in this online survey? Participation is 100% confidential. The criteria is simple: You must be atleast 21 years old and have lived in North Carolina for atleast 2 years. Parents of middle school and high school age children are highly encouraged to participate!

To participate, simply send your name and email address to reach_sreed@hotmail.com. Then, in the next week or two you will receive an email inviting you to take the survey at surveytime.com. The invitation email will have a hyperlink to the survey that you can follow. It is that easy.

All participants will be entered to win a free weekend getaway. So what are you waiting for? 5-10 minutes of your time can make a lasting impact on education throughout North Carolina!

I like the idea, but why 21 years of age? I'm sure people coming directly out of high school would have some definite feedback they would like to give.

Why 21 years of age? The Dept. of Public Instruction made the decision to target the general population for those over 21 to limit the number of student responses. They have met their quota for singles without children (college students under 21 fit this profile) but desperately need older adults who have children to participate.

No offense, but I don't think the state of public education in NC is an advertising problem.
