Education remains the number one issue among Arizona voters for the sixth consecutive year, according to a recent poll by High Ground, Inc. on behalf of Expect More Arizona.
Education issues (28%) topped healthcare (18%) and jobs/economy (16%) as the top issue facing the state, even among those respondents without children under 18 living at home. When asked specifically to identify the top issue facing education in Arizona, a general lack of funding for schools topped the list (26%).
In addition, the poll reported a significant majority of voters (79%) believe the salaries teachers receive in Arizona is too low.
