Many Districts Lagging on Implementing Common Core, Survey Finds

Many Districts Lagging on Implementing Common Core, Survey Finds | Teach-ologies | Scoop.it
A new report claims "the future of the common core remains uncertain at this important juncture" because many districts are not yet fully prepared to impart the new academic expectations in reading and math.

 

Survey: Districts Lag On Common Core Implementation, But Majority Support It.

Education Week (10/8, Gewertz) reports surveying by the Center on Education Policy of a nationally representative 211-district sample found about 30% of district superintendents predict they won’t complete curriculum adjustments and professional development required to implement Common Core until the 2015-16 school year or later, if at all. One third reported will achieve those goals this year. Additionally, many reported they’re even further behind on instructional materials and testing technology. The remainder of the article provides more detailed findings, comments from various educators, and comparison to similar results from June polling by Gallup and Education Week.

Mel Riddile's curator insight, October 9, 8:35 AM

"About 30 percent of district superintendents surveyed said, for instance, that they won’t fully implement the standards in both math and English/language arts in all their schools until the 2015-16 school year or later, or that they weren’t sure when they’d be implemented. About one-third said they will reach that milestone during this school year. The survey drew from a nationally representative sample of 211 districts."

It was so encouraging that I wanted to share them with you. Here are 20 ideas from 20 principals to inspire you to try something new in your school or organization"
