Do the early polls on possible changes to California’s Proposition 13 tell us anything about this controversial and certain to be hotly contested issue?
Annual poll of California voters, led by researchers at the University of Southern California Rossier School of Education and the independent research group Policy Analysis for California Education (PACE), identified five top education issues:
Californians overwhelmingly support Gov. Gavin Newsom’s recent proposals to increase funding for all levels of education and are optimistic that he and the legislature can work together to accomplish a lot, a new poll found.
A new poll conducted by the University of Southern California in collaboration with the Policy Analysis for California Education (PACE) shows that California voters view reducing gun violence in schools as the top educational issue facing the state, though there was less agreement on how lawmakers should address the issue. The poll, found reducing gun violence in schools was the top issue for Democratic respondents, and second among Republicans.
Separately, A USC Rossier/PACE poll released today
A USC Rossier/PACE poll released today finds that 55% of California voters voiced at least some support for changing Proposition 13, the state’s property tax law. During last month’s Los Angeles teachers strike, the law was often cited as a factor that limits increased funding for K-12 schools in California. The poll was taken in early January before the LA teachers strike started.
The newest edition of the USC Rossier/PACE Poll of 2,000 registered voters, found that reducing gun violence in schools is the top educational issue facing the state. The nonprofit policy and research organization PACE and the USC Rossier School of Education conducted the annual online poll during the first week in January.
PACE research is cited in article about the growing community schools movement. This movement advocates for transforming schools so they become neighborhood hubs that bring together families, educators, government agencies and community groups and organizations to provide all the opportunities and services young people need to thrive. This idea of communities working to improve schooling – and thereby democracy – is a central premise of the growing this movement.
