If you have school-age children, you are less likely to support Common Core Standards. Those are the findings of a recent national poll by Rasmussen Reports.
According to the poll just 34 percent of American adults with children of elementary or secondary age favor requiring all schools to meet the same Common Core education standards. Just last November over half of all Americans (52 percent) favored requiring all schools to meet the same standards.
Another interesting result is that the percent of those who oppose the imposition of national standards grew from 32 percent (November 2013) to 47 percent (June 2014).
The poll surveyed 1,000 adults and was conducted on June 21-22, 2014. The margin of sampling error is +/- 3 percentage points.
These are encouraging results to those who have been fighting the battle against Common Core. They also seem to demonstrate — in an indirect way — that the more one knows about Common Core standards, the less likely they are to support them.
