Members of the State’s Common Core Task Force listen to Mark Watts of Abacus Associates explain the results of a poll of CEA and AFT members.

At today’s meeting of the State’s Common Core Task Force members looked directly at the issues teachers themselves report having implementing the Common Core State Standards (CCSS). Mark Watts of Abacus Associates, a public opinion firm, shared the results of a survey of 600 CEA and AFT members who are responsible for implementing the CCSS in their schools.

The survey found that “the issues teachers have with implementing CCSS are both broad and deep.” Educators are most concerned about the amount of time, support and materials, and professional learning and training opportunities available to them.
