A survey of teachers show they are still wary of Common Core

HARTFORD, Conn. – A survey of the two largest teacher unions found that Connecticut teachers continue to be concerned about implementing the Common Core State Standards.

The survey of 600 teachers — 500 from the Connecticut Education Association and 100 from AFT Connecticut — found that educators are concerned about the time, support, and professional training opportunities available to them.

The new survey, which was presented to Gov. Dannel P. Malloy’s task force on the Common Core on Wednesday, found that 82 percent are concerned about the amount of time they have to “adequately learn, develop, and implement common core standards.”

About 81 percent are concerned about having adequate technology for assessment and curriculum to help them implement the Common Core and 78 percent are concerned about training opportunities.
