Problem is, some of these new tests are in many ways even worse than the old ones. This according to a survey of "education insiders" due to be published this week.
Joy Resmovits at Huffington reports:
Beyond the tests, the insiders believe that the Common Core itself faces a rocky path. School districts "are very unprepared" for the new standards, according to 80 percent of respondents, and only one-quarter believe teachers have "very strong" support for the Common Core. On the other hand, commercial vendors, three-quarters of "insiders" say, have strong or very strong support for the Common Core.
