School Improvement Network: Most Parents Support Common Core Amid Widespread Misinformation


THE Journal (7/17) reports that according to a survey from the School Improvement Network, 62% of parents “support the Common Core,” 22% oppose the standards and 17% “have no opinion.” The survey reports that many supporters say they back the Common Core because the standards “ensure all children learn from a uniform curriculum,” and the article notes that many respondents on both sides of the issue “are misinformed.”
