Interesting Findings from Today's Math Teachers

A recent blog post from Education Week gives us this interesting CCSS factoid, as well as some other very unique findings from the study, including:

  • most teachers reporting they have received less than 20 hours of professional development on the Common Core over the past year
  • 14 percent of polled teachers believe they do not have adequate familiarity with the math content standards and 13 percent feel they lack familiarity with the math practice standards
  • 95 percent of teachers feel the math practice standards are essential to learning math

You can learn more about the study's findings and teacher Common Core opinions by reading Education Week's blog post (linked below).
