Archipelago Learning reports that 97% of teachers surveyed hold favorable attitudes towards the Common Core Standards. The findings from Archipelago’s Study Island 2011 year-end customer survey found 57% of teachers were “very favorable” overall towards the Common Core Standards, up from 27% in 2009. 

Those reporting a “somewhat favorable” attitude comprised 40% of the sample size, with a mere 2% reporting “somewhat unfavorable” attitudes, down from 12% in 2009. No respondents reported “very unfavorable” feelings about the Common Core Standards, down from 2% in 2009. Accepted now by all but four states, the Common Core Standards are designed to build on current thinking about preparing all students for success in college and their careers.

As a clear set of shared goals and expectations, the Common Core Standards rely on the positive attitudes of teachers and principals who will ultimately determine how the Standards are taught.
