They found that just 34% of adults with children in elementary or secondary school favor all schools nationwide to meet the Common Core State Standards.  That is a drop of 18% since early November 2013.  47% opposed the Common Core, and 19% are undecided.

54% believe the Common Core is unlikely to improve student performance, only 37% believe they will do what advocates promise.

Among all Americans Rasmussen notes 41% favor the the Common Core with 36% of Americans being opposed.  23% are undecided.  44% of all Americans believe Common Core will not improve student performance.

Also of interest 54% of all Americans believe schools place too much emphasis on standardized testing.  Just 24% believe student scores on standardized tests should be a major factor in determining how well a school is doing.

Only 23% of Americans believe the Feds should set education standards for schools.  Rasmussen reports that it up from 18% in November.  39% believe the state should with 27% saying local governments should.  The state number is higher than the last time this was polled, and the local government response dropped seven points.
