Opinion of Common Core is on our side

How do you feel about Common Core? We polled it last month and when it comes to Common Core Missourians who know about it do not like it. It has left a bipartisan bad taste in the mouths of voters.

The problem is not enough of your neighbors, friends, and co-workers know what Common Core is.

When we made the decision to poll it we found out that 44% have an unfavorable opinion of Common Core while only 15% view it in a favorable light. Unfortunately 41% of those surveyed had no opinion. The results are clear. Informed Missourians do not like this federal takeover of a local issue.

Student privacy is important when talking about Common Core. When it comes to electronic surveillance of citizens and data collection/retention Missourians overwhelmingly believe the government has too much power. The majority do not trust government at any level with access to data regarding student test scores, location, and other personal information.

Missourians like their privacy and most of all their freedom. They view Common Core and big government data basing of themselves and their children with a skeptical eye. As a result we are seeing parents and grandparents all over the state rise up in opposition to the education establishment who gave them Common Core.

Anne has been writing on MEW since 2012 and has been a citizen lobbyist on Common Core since 2013. Some day she would like to see a national Hippocratic oath for educators “I will remember that there is an art to teaching as well as science, and that warmth, sympathy and understanding are sometimes more important than policy or what the data say. My first priority is to do no harm to the children entrusted to my temporary care.”
