Teachers Surveyed about Teaching in an

Era of Change

TT

he debate surrounding the introduction of Common Core Standards into school systems across America has been fierce and has become a political hot potato destined to work its way into next year’s presidential contest. After two years of theorizing Common Core’s impact on education, the first empirical evidence of its effectiveness and popularity is beginning to come to light. Scholastic and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation have released results from the comprehensive survey Primary Sources: America’s Teachers on Teaching in an Era of Change. More than 20,000 teachers in all 50 states participated in this research, revealing teachers’ views on the rewards and challenges of teaching, the implementation of the Common Core State Standards, how teacher evaluation systems are working and how parents can best support their children’s success in school and more.
