New survey shows Common Core support declining

  // Tuesday, 19 August 2014 07:46 //

Public support for Common Core, the education standards heavily supported by former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, has suffered as more people learn about it, according to a new survey.

While 80 percent of Americans have heard about Common Core, 60 percent oppose requiring teachers to use the standards to guide instruction, the survey by PDK/Gallup finds.

Opposition among Republicans was at 76 percent. Among Democrats, it was 38 percent, and independents 60 percent.

"For the 33% of Americans who favor the Common Core, the most important reason is because it will help more students learn what they need to know regardless of where they go to school," read a survey memo released Wednesday.
