Poll Says State Voters Willing To Pay For Early Education Programs

Posted May 12, 2005

— A new poll found that most North Carolina voters support early education programs -- and that they're willing to spend more taxpayer money to help.

A group called "

Pre-K Now

" released the survey Thursday morning.

More than 70 percent of voters support spending millions more for Smart Start.

The poll also concluded voters rated education as a higher priority than tax relief.

Former Gov. Jim Hunt, who helped pioneer Smart Start, was on hand for Thursday's news conference.
