The Alabama Association of School Boards has once again partnered with the Public Affairs Research Council of Alabama (PARCA) to gauge Alabama residents' views on important themes in public education.

Released today, PARCA's Public Opinion Survey: 2019 Edition reveals that Alabamians rate education as a top priority among major state services and believe too little is being spent on education.

While nearly 70 percent of respondents said they would be willing to support higher taxes to increase education funding, no single tax-increase option (property, sales or Internet purchases) garnered majority support.
