Common Core and parent support survey

Sixty-two percent of parents with school-aged children support the Common Core State Standards, according to a new survey. Only 22 percent of parents who responded to the survey told researchers they were opposed and 17 percent said they had no opinion.
The most commonly cited reason for supporting the standards, at 34 percent, was that they ensure all children learn from a uniform curriculum. Those in opposition were most likely to say, at a rate of 33 percent, that they opposed the standards because they "do not address all student needs or allow students to learn at different rates,"
