Statewide Survey: Californians and Education

Virtual Event

April 11, 2024 · 11:00 am - 11:40 am

About the Program

PPIC’s April survey explores Californians’ opinions of the quality of K–12 public education, school funding and resources, and state officials’ handling of the education system. The survey also examines sentiments around the pandemic’s impact on academic performance and well-being and probes attitudes about policies that allow school boards to ban books and decide curriculum. PPIC survey analyst Deja Thomas will present findings and discuss key takeaways from the survey with associate survey director Dean Bonner.

This event is supported with funding from the PPIC Corporate Circle and the PPIC Donor Circle. The survey was supported with funding from the Arjay R. and Frances F. Miller Foundation, Stuart Foundation, and Windy Hill Fund.
