Conference Call For Reporters: New PACE/USC Rossier School of Education Poll on California Public Education

Researchers will speak with reporters Wednesday, Aug. 22 at 10 a.m. about the latest findings in the PACE/USC Rossier School of Education Poll.

Results from the PACE/USC Rossier Poll will include:

  • Are Californians in favor of Gov. Jerry Brown’s tax initiative, Proposition 30, to raise taxes in order to avoid further spending reductions in education and public safety? 
  • How is the other tax initiative to fund schools and early childhood education - Proposition 38 - faring?
  • What grades do Californians give their state and local public schools?
  • Do Californians believe more technology and online education can help solve the state’s education woes?

The panelists will include Dan Schnur, director of the PACE/USC Rossier Poll and director of the Unruh Institute of Politics at USC, and Dominic Brewer, Clifford H. and Betty C. Allen Professor in Urban Leadership at the USC Rossier School.

Call-in spots are limited. To reserve a spot for the phone conference, RSVP to  Merrill Balassone at (213) 740-6156 or balasson@usc.edu.
