The survey was commissioned by Achieve, a nonprofit group that played a lead role in managing the development of the common-core standards. You can find a report and PowerPoint presentation on the results here.
Teacher awareness, the survey asked: Thinking about the last six months, how much have you seen, read, or heard about these Common Core State Standards?
- A lot (65 percent)
- Some (22 percent)
- Not much (7 percent)
- Nothing at all (6 percent)
So, a combined total of 87 percent of the teachers surveyed said they had heard "a lot" or "some," which compares with 68 percent when the same question was asked in August 2011.
68% of teachers have faovarable impressions: And, has what you have seen, read, or heard recently about the Common Core State Standards given you a favorable or unfavorable impression of the standards?
- Very favorable (24 percent)
- Somewhat favorable (44 percent)
- Somewhat unfavorable (13 percent)
- Very unfavorable (7 percent)
