Republican, Democrat political insiders say Utah should keep Common Core

SALT LAKE CITY — A majority of Democrats and a plurality of Republicans say Utah should stay the course on the Common Core State Standards, according to the latest Utah Policy.com/KSL Insider Survey.

The survey, which regularly polls a group of roughly 250 lawmakers, lobbyists and policymakers on political issues, found that 88 percent of Democrat insiders and 49 percent of Republican insiders think the state should continue using the standards, which outline the minimum English and mathematics skills a student should learn at each grade level.

"I was surprised that the support for Common Core among our Republican insiders was so high," UtahPolicy.com managing editor Bryan Schott said. "I was expecting maybe one-third but not almost one-half."

But readers who participated in the online survey were overwhelmingly opposed to the standards, which are seen by some as a federal intrusion into local control of education.
