PPIC’s annual Statewide Survey on Californians and Education is the sixth to look at Californians’ views of the state’s K–12 system. With public schools facing unprecedented fiscal challenges, the survey examines respondents’ spending priorities, concern about specific spending cuts, and preferences for raising revenues. It tracks attitudes about educational quality, ratings of local public schools, relative rankings of California’s per-pupil spending and student test scores, approval ratings of elected officials, and parents’ hopes for their children’s education.
The survey also looks at attitudes toward federal efforts to improve the education system, perceptions of resource equity among the state’s schools, and preferences for merit pay for teachers.

This study was conducted with funding from The William and Flora Hewett Foundation. Lunch will be provided and there is no charge to attend. Pre-registration is requested.

PPIC research associate Sonja Petek is a project manager on the PPIC Statewide Survey team.
