Educators and Parents Support the Common Core State Standards

In response to opposition to the Common Core State Standards from some political groups, School Improvement Network conducted a national survey of educators and commissioned a national telephone survey of parents to bring insight from two of the most significant stakeholders in education.

Survey results also show several misconceptions among parents as to the source and nature of the Standards, especially among those who oppose them.
