If you’re a regular visitor to this blog or this site, you’re probably well acquainted with Common Core.
And that puts you in the minority, according to a new Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research poll.
The sobering results of this survey of 1,025 parents:
- Fifty-two percent of parents said they’d heard “only a little” or “nothing at all” about the controversial math and English language arts standards.
- About a quarter said they’d heard “a lot” about the standards.
- About 22 percent said they’d heard a “moderate amount” about them.
- About a third of parents were unsure whether their state was among the 45 adopting Common Core.
Spoiler alert: Idaho is among those 45, adopting Idaho Core Standards this fall.
But we’re guessing many of you already knew that.
Here’s an AP story about the survey.
