UT/TT Poll: Texas Voters Aren’t Satisfied with the State’s Handling of Public Education

A new poll by the University of Texas and the Texas Tribune indicates that most Texans don’t approve of the way state leaders and legislators are handling public education. Just 16 percent approve, with 51 percent disapproving and 33 percent having no opinion.

When asked “What do you think should be the primary source of funding for public education in Texas?” 50 percent said state government, 32 percent said local districts (property taxes), and 18 percent said they didn’t know.

Read “Texans think state leaders are falling short on public education, UT/TT Poll finds,” in the Texas Tribune.
