IFT Members Weigh in on the Common Core

3/17/2013
The IFT would like to thank the more than 4,000 members who took the time to respond to the union’s recent survey about Common Core State Standards (CCSS) awareness and preparedness. Nearly 90 percent of survey respondents are certified teachers, and 70 percent of respondents work in the elementary and middle school grades. 

DOWNLOAD SURVEY RESULTS

Key findings include:
  • 80 percent of respondents are aware of their school or district’s plan for CCSS implementation
  • Just more than half (51 percent) rated their own CCSS readiness as “emerging”; only 14 percent said their knowledge is “strong” or “expert”
  • Respondents overwhelmingly cited the need for more time for work, collaboration, and implementation related to CCSS
  • Educators need additional CCSS training and professional development
The IFT will use this valuable feedback to plan union-sponsored training, materials and other resources to support our teachers and PSRPs as they work to implement the new standards in schools statewide. 

A detailed summary of the survey results is available here.
