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

April 2011

Some findings of the current survey:

  • Most Californians are very concerned that the state’s budget deficit will mean significant cuts to K–12 education.
  • Six in ten adults and likely voters favor Governor Brown’s plan of spending cuts and temporary tax increases to close the deficit and avoid cuts to schools.
  • More than half of public school parents say they have noticed reduced numbers of support staff or fewer programs at their child’s school.
