Hi.
what does underlined word mean?

People’s opinions differ as to whether or not school children should be given homework.

Teachers,
I got the answer. It is phrase "as to" that mean "concerning about" in the link below. Am I right?

Does this alternative edition make proper sense as well?

The link doesn't say 'concerning about': it says 'concerning or about'.

Your alternative version (not edition) is fine.
