PPIC Statewide Survey: Californians and Education
Mark Baldassare, Dean Bonner, Sonja Petek, and Jui Shrestha

April 2013

Some findings of the current survey:

  • A strong majority of Californians favor Governor Brown’s K–12 funding proposal, which would direct extra money to lower-income and English Learner students.
  • Most Californians believe that targeting funds in this way will improve the academic achievement of disadvantaged students.
  • An overwhelming majority also favor giving local school districts more flexibility over how state money is spent.
