PPIC Statewide Survey: Californians and Education
Some findings of the current survey:
- California’s likely voters favor raising income taxes on the wealthy to increase funding for public schools, but they oppose raising the state sales tax.
- Just over half of likely voters—54%—would vote yes on Governor Brown’s proposed tax initiative and a strong majority oppose automatic cuts to K–12 education if the initiative is rejected.
- An overwhelming majority prefer local control over state funds for schools.
