AFT Poll: Teachers Back Standards, But Feel Unprepared

The Orlando (FL) Sentinel (5/7, Postal) reports in its "School Zone" blog that a poll by the American Federation of Teachers shows that while teachers nationwide "overwhelmingly support" the Common Core Standards, they "also are overwhelmingly worried that new tests tied to those new standards will be given to students too soon." Moreover, the poll found that some 57% say "their districts are prepared to implement the new standards," though 72% "don't think their districts have given them the tools and resources to successfully teach the Common Core."
