Common Core Update: Perceptions, Preferences, and Buying Patterns in Reading/LA, Mathematics, Social Studies and Science

Common Core Update: Perceptions, Preferences, and Buying Patterns in Reading/LA, Mathematics, Social Studies and Science

Everyone is interested in the effects of Common Core State Standards on the K-12 school market. Of particular importance is how spending patterns related to instructional materials, technology, assessment, and professional development have been altered as a result of the adoption of Common Core. This report examines those new spending patterns.

Is there a growing backlash against the new Common Core standards? News reports make it sound like there is. It is important to recognize that not all of the Common Core headlines have been negative. In fact, some recent research strongly suggests that Common Core is actually working in students’ favor, at least in one state which was the earliest adopter of CCSS.
