Poll finds sympathy for high-poverty schools

Georgians support a school funding formula that sends more money to high poverty school districts, says a new poll by the Georgia Budget and Policy Institute.

The poll of 625 Georgia voters finds 69 percent of respondents support sending more state money to K-12 districts with “large” numbers of students from families in poverty, plus 71 percent favor increased spending on the state’s subsidized child care program so it can serve more working families.

GBPI is a nonprofit, nonpartisan organization that examines budget and tax polies “to inspire informed debate and responsible decision-making,” its website says.
