Growing Awareness, Growing Support Poll
Continuing Achieve’s work to gauge the public's awareness of and support for the new Common Core State Standards (CCSS) and aligned common assessments, a national poll was commissioned in May 2012 to build on the results of Achieve’s August 2011 poll. In those 8-9 months, awareness among teachers on the CCSS and common assessments increased and their support also increased. The voting public continues to give high marks to the idea of having common standards and assessments. When given additional information about the CCSS and the related assessment, their support remains high. It will be crucial to maintain teacher and public enthusiasm for CCSS as they are implemented in thousands of schools across 46 states and the District of Columbia.
