Survey by group opposed to core standards finds teachers support them

A solid majority of teachers support the new Idaho Core Standards, according to a survey commissioned by a conservative group opposing the standards, reports Kevin Richert of Idaho Education News; you can read his full report here. The December survey of 402 teachers conducted by the Idaho Freedom Foundation found that 59 percent had favorable or very favorable impressions of the new math and language arts standards, and only 31 percent opposed them. The survey also found that just 12 percent the teachers had a favorable view of the Idaho Freedom Foundation, 17 percent were unfavorable, and 71 percent were unaware of the organization.
