A candidate’s position on public school funding will be an important consideration among Oklahomans voting for state legislators in November, according to a new SoonerPoll of 495 likely voters.

From the Tulsa World’s Randy Krehbiel:

Almost two-thirds of Oklahomans say they are very concerned about the funding of their local public schools, and more than nine in 10 say they will take that funding into consideration when casting ballots in this fall’s legislative races, according to the most recent Oklahoma Poll.

Likely voters aren’t “entirely buying” lawmaker’s claims that reforms have improved school efficiency, Krehbiel reports.

Some poll results, courtesy the World:

How concerned are you about the cuts to your local public schools?

Very concerned.….….…..64%
Somewhat concerned ..24%
Not concerned at all .…..11%
Don’t know/refused .….…1%

Don’t know/refused.……12%
