A recent survey of voters reveals a solid majority thinks K-12 schools have a “great” need for facility funding. Student safety, preparing students for jobs, and access to affordable college education resonate strongly with voters as reasons to vote in favor of such a measure.
The survey was conducted by FM3 Research, a California-based company that has been conducting public policy-oriented opinion research since 1981. Of those polled, 57% believe K-12 schools need facility funding. A decline for significant funding needs was noted for higher education, specifically for the University of California.
The bottom line shows a narrow majority of November 2020 general election voters would vote yes to approve a K-12/community college bond and slightly more than half of March 2020 primary election voters also favor the K-12/community college bond.
