PPIC Statewide Survey: Californians and Education

Summary

Some findings of the current survey:

  • A strong majority of Californians support the Local Control Funding Formula; fewer than half favor the Common Core State Standards.
  • Most public school parents say they have heard nothing at all about the Smarter Balanced assessments.
  • Half of Californians say the state’s budget situation is a big problem for K–12 education and six in 10 say state funding for local schools is not enough.
  • Two-thirds of adults and about half of likely voters would vote yes on a state or local bond measure to fund school construction projects.
