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.
This survey was supported with funding from The William and Flora Hewlett Foundation.
