National Household Education Survey (NHES)

The National Household Education Survey (NHES) is a national telephone survey of U.S. households conducted by NCES. The School Safety and Discipline (SS&D) component of the 1993 NHES included a sample of about 10,000 parents of students in grades 6-12 and covered such topics as their perceptions of:

  • The adequacy of discipline at their children's schools,
  • Mutual respect between students and teachers, and
  • Peer approval for achievement and good behavior in school.
