The majority of Arizona voters believe that a top-quality public school system is either crucial or very important to the future of Arizona, but few believe state funding reflects that commitment, according to findings in a recent Merrill/Morrison Institute poll.

The statewide poll of 488 registered voters was conducted in mid to late April. The information was released Thursday.

While support for a quality public school system is high, the poll also found that half of Arizona’s voters rate the state’s public schools as poor or very poor, and nearly three-quarters say that the state’s public school system is underfunded.
