Title:Strong support, low awareness: Public perception of the common core state standards
Organization:Achieve, Inc.
Short Description:To explore the public’s awareness of and support for the new Common Core State Standards and aligned common assessments Achieve commissioned a national poll1 in August 2011.
Annotation:In June 2010, the final Common Core State Standards (CCSS) –K-12 standards in mathematics and English language arts/literacy developed through a multi-state initiative – were released. Since then, 45 states and Washington DC have chosen to adopt the new standards as their own. Implementation efforts are underway in most of these states, providing an important foundation for transforming education and making college and career readiness a reality for all students. Despite the widespread adoption of the standards – which will directly impact the over 42 million students in K-12 public schools across 45 states and the 2.7 million educators teaching in those schools – it has been unclear what, if anything, the public knows and thinks about the CCSS and related reforms. To explore the public’s awareness of and support for the new Common Core State Standards and aligned common assessments Achieve commissioned a national poll1 in August 2011.
