Seeing Need for School Funding,
Most Favor Proposition 30 Extension, Construction Bond
Public Policy Institute of California | April 20, 2016
The Public Policy Institute of California (PPIC), a nonprofit, nonpartisan organization dedicated to informing and improving public policy in California through independent, objective, nonpartisan research, released a new statewide poll yesterday that found:
“Most Californians say state funding for their local public schools is inadequate, and most favor two proposals that are likely to be on the November ballot to increase it: an extension of the Proposition 30 tax increase on higher incomes and a bond measure to pay for school construction projects…
…Majorities of adults (64%) and likely voters (62%) favor extending for 12 years the Proposition 30 tax increase on earnings over $250,000 to fund education and health care, as an initiative now circulating for the November ballot would do. Asked how they would vote on a state bond measure to pay for school construction projects, most (76% adults, 63% likely voters) would vote yes. A bond measure for school construction projects has already qualified for the ballot.”
The PPIC Statewide Survey provides a voice for the public and likely voters on key policy issues facing the state. Read the entire poll here at the PPIC website.
