...[T]he Standards should be viewed as a way to ensure our students graduate from high school with the skills they need to succeed in college, a career, and a globally competitive market.
Salt Lake City, UT (PRWEB) July 17, 2014
School Improvement Network, the leader in educator effectiveness resources, today announced a new blog post featuring national survey results showing parents support the Common Core State Standards and believe they will increase educational quality. The survey also highlights reasons why parents agree or disagree with the Standards, including believing they raise educational quality or the misconception that they do not differentiate learning.
“Despite their simple and agnostic goal of raising educational quality for our students, the Common Core State Standards have become overly political in states across the nation and viewed as part of a political agenda,” said Chet D. Linton, CEO and president of School Improvement Network. “Instead, the Standards should be viewed as a way to ensure our students graduate from high school with the skills they need to succeed in college, a career, and a globally competitive market.”
Full survey results include:
- Why parents support the Common Core State Standards
- Misconceptions that parents have about the Common Core State Standards
- Which political affiliations are most likely to support and oppose the Common Core State Standards
- How parents think the Common Core State Standards will impact educational quality
