Among the nation's K-12 principals, getting enough money for schools is a top concern.

More than half—52 percent—said that adequate funding was their most important concern, according to survey data published last week by MCH Strategic Data.

Another 28 percent of principals ranked funding as very important.

After funding, principals' said their most important concerns are teacher morale (38 percent); student attendance (33 percent); aligning assessments to standards (32 percent); behavior issues in children (31 percent); bullying (18 percent); and class size (16 percent).

The survey of more than 1,000 principals from across the country was conducted in January.
