A new survey shows that around 70 percent of New Mexico residents polled support more state funding for pre-kindergarten education.
The poll, conducted by Research & Polling, Inc. and commissioned by St. Joseph Community Health, also found that nearly 80 percent of those polled felt that early childhood education was important for children under 5 years of age.
According to the poll, 8 out of 10 residents support sending an “early childhood funding amendment” to voters.
The poll was a random sample of 603 adult residents in New Mexico and was conducted between Aug. 24 and Sept. 5. It had a margin of error of 4 percent.
