Confidence in U.S. public schools plunged to a scary new all-time low — just 29 percent! And schools aren’t alone. Across the board, it looks like Americans are losing faith in institutions. 

Other record lows were recorded for the church or organized religion, 44 percent; banks, 21 percent; and television news, 21 percent.
Congress ranked last — as it has for the last three years — at 13 percent.
