Today’s read is from Liz Farmer, writing on Governing.com.
Most people believe their public schools need more money. A new survey, however, illustrates just how wide the gap is between wanting more funding and being willing to pay for it.
According to the 51st annual PDK Poll of the Public’s Attitudes Toward the Public Schools, 60 percent of parents and 75 percent of teachers say their community’s schools don’t have enough money. But a nearly equal share of those groups would rather see funding cuts elsewhere than raise taxes to pay for more.
