New Poll of Superintendents Reinforces AASA's Findings on CCSS

 Permanent link   All Posts

A new survey of superintendents from Gallup and Education Week on the Common Core State Standards had a similar message as our survey from a few weeks ago. Overall, in both surveys, superintendents are supportive of the standards and see them as an improvement over former standards: the Gallup/EdWeek poll found that two thirds of superintendents believe the CCSS will improve the quality of education, while 92.5 percent of superintendents in the AASA survey said that the new standards are more rigorous than the previous standards. The Gallup/EdWeek poll and our AASA survey saw superintendents not feeling enough support from federal and state government, respectively.

We are excited to see other groups bringing in the superintendent voice and a continuing conversation around the positives and negatives around CCSS at the district level.
