More Survey Info on Budget Cuts

The Deseret News/KSL survey also asked the following question to 413 Utah residents:

Please rate how much of a priority you feel each of the following programs should have. 5 meaning high 1 meaning low. (others included Higher Ed, Health and Human Services, Public Safety, Corrections, Transportation, State parks and recreation, and Environmental Quality)

  • Public Education received these resultys: High Priority 55% (5) - 25% (4) -14% (3) - 3% (2) 3% (1)

That is good news for public ed. The survey shows that our citizens value public schools and teachers. The closest one to public ed was Health and Human Services, like aid to the disabled and medicaid.

80% of those surveyed held us at a very high level. Hopefully the legislature will listen to their consituents.
