Minority and low-income parents are more likely to see serious problems in their children's schools.
An Associated Press and Center for Public Affairs research poll found those problems include bullying, out-of-date technology, and old textbooks.
There is a division in opinions on the reason why.
Sixty-one percent of black parents saw inequality in school funding as a problem, while only 32 percent of white parents felt that way.
Fifty percent of Hispanic parents said a lack of computers and technology was a problem, while only 34 percent of black parents and 16 percent of white parents said the same.
