Voter Perceptions: Common Core State Standards & Tests
Since June 2010, 46 states and Washington DC have adopted the Common Core State Standards (CCSS)--K-12 standards in mathematics and English language arts/literacy developed through a multi-state initiative led by the National Governors Association and the Council of Chief State School Officers. Implementation of the standards is underway in all of these states with 35 states planning to have fully implemented the standards by the end of the 2013-14 school year, and the remaining 11 states with plans for full implementation by the end of the 2014-15 school year. The new CCSS-aligned common assessments currently under development and being field tested this spring will be ready for full administration in the 2014-15 school year. These standards and assessments will impact students in K-12 public schools across the United States and the educators teaching in those schools. Through nationally commissioned polling, Achieve has been monitoring voter awareness and support for the CCSS. The first national poll was conducted in August 2011, the second poll was conducted in May 2012, and this third poll was conducted in November 2013. This report evaluates the results of these polls and highlights key findings.
