Mark Baldassare, Dean Bonner, Sonja Petek, and Jui Shrestha

Some findings of the current survey:

  • Strong majorities of Californians support the Common Core State Standards and the Local Control Funding Formula.
  • Nearly three in four say the state should fund voluntary preschool for all four-year-olds.
  • About half still consider California’s budget situation a big problem for K–12 education and view state funding for local schools as inadequate.
