PPIC’s latest Statewide Survey, Californians and Education, examines Californians' opinions about K-12 public education in the state, including perceptions of the quality of K-12 education, approval ratings of elected officials, and ratings of local public schools. It examines fiscal attitudes, including the adequacy and efficiency of state funding, spending priorities in light of the state's budget deficit, and ways to maintain current funding levels. It also reviews policy preferences on issues such as student testing, the high school drop-out rate, English learners, teacher shortages, curriculum, and data systems.
