In September 2020 the Public Opinion Research Centre examined views of the Czech public on the creation of special schools in compulsory nine-year basic education and views on whether the children with physical or mental disabilities, children from poor or vice versa from wealthy families, children of foreign nationals, Roma children and gifted children should be educated in mainstream classes.
More than half (51%) of the Czech public believed that the government should not cloused all schools once the coronavirus spread worsened, more than two-fifths (42%) belive the government should do that. People do not make a significant difference between distance education at primary and secondary level, as in both cases around two thirds of respondents agreed that it should be compulsory for all children in the event of school closure.
In September, the Public Opinion Research Centre asked a set of questions related to attitudes of the Czech citizens towards an amendment of a law about Czech educational system.

In a survey conducted by Public Opinion Research Centre in September 2020, we investigated how people trust to political Parties and whether they are willing to take part in elections to the Chamber of Deputies. In the press release, there are two different types of information: the likely voter model and the party preferences.
The likely voter model indicates the anticipated result of hypothetical elections to the Chamber of Deputies in the time of conducting the survey.
The party preferences give us information about public sympathy for political parties in the group of citizens who have voting right and there is also included a part of citizens who will not take part in elections or they do not know who to vote for.
