Shock Poll: 56% of Tennessee Teachers Want to Abandon Common Core

1379075975000-Tennessee-FlagThe Tennessean reports that a majority of teachers now oppose the Common Core State Standards.

I’m sure that’s just because of misconceptions they have right?

I mean really how will Fordham and other advocates spin this?

We are not talking a small number of teachers surveyed either.

27,000 teachers were polled by the Tennessee Consortium on Research, Evaluation and Development.

56% of those teachers want to totally abandon the standards.  13% want to delay them.  Only 31% of teachers surveyed want to continue on course.

This should send a clear signal to the Tennessee Legislature and Governor Bill Haslam that it is time to repeal the Common Core.  Parents and now teachers are speaking very clearly.  Either you side with your constituents or you side with big business.

  1. Uh Oh, maybe some facilitators need to be flown in for reeducation classes and teacher training. I was under the impression teachers have to love common core or they will be replaced.
