On Nov. 1, the Atlanta Regional Commission released the results of the “Metro Atlanta Speaks” survey, described as “one of the most extensive in the region’s history.”

It revealed some interesting things about the 10-county Atlanta region. The A.L. Burruss Institute of Public Service and Research at Kennesaw State University surveyed over 2,100 voting age adults.

The survey revealed that metro residents want better roads and public transit, with 71.3 percent believing that public transportation is “very important” for the region’s future. Despite the Atlanta Public Schools cheating scandal and dysfunction in the DeKalb County School System, 35.5 percent of respondents think education in the area is “fair.”
