The most recent survey by the Public Policy Institute of California shows residents are not only worried about the state of the economy- but also about the education system. P.P.I.C. President Mark Baldassare reports 53-percent of residents say the quality of schools is a major problem—and 59-percent say the school system needs major changes.
“You see that many Californians are concerned about the fact that we have a problem with high school drop outs, that we have a problem with students not graduating because they can’t pass the high school exit exam.”
The survey also shows the Governor’s approval rating is slipping. 41-percent of Californians like the way Schwarzenegger is doing his job. That’s down three points from March. It’s a sixteen-point slide from December.
The survey took place between April eighth and the 22nd.
