Readers of the Louisiana Educator were asked to respond to: What actions would you like to see Louisiana take relative to the Common Core State Standards (CCSS)?
- A total of 2724 readers responded to the survey.
- 61 respondents, or 2% stated that they would: Implement the CCSS just as has been prescribed by Superintendent John White with the approval of BESE.
- 709 respondents, or 26% stated that they would: Implement the CCSS and the PARCC but phase them in over a longer period of time starting with lower elementary grades and progressing 1 or 2 grades each year until it covers all grades.
- 1954 respondents, or 71% stated that they would: Do away with both CCSS and PARCC and substitute an improved version of GLEs as the standards for all the basic core subjects. Louisiana would implement its own testing as has been done in the past.
