19% say Common Core implementation in New York has improved education.
40% say it has made education worse.
24% say it has had no effect.
That's 64% who say it has either had no effect or made things worse.
Considering the enormous time, money, energy and other resources put into the agenda, 64% saying it has either had no effect or made things worse is NOT where you want to be if you're an educrat or politician supporting the Common Core.
Look no further for why Cuomo called for a review of the Common Core a few weeks ago than these poll numbers.
Well, maybe you can look a little further - to Cuomo's own poll numbers:
Job Approval - 39%
Job Disapproval - 59%
He's underwater by 20 points in job approval.
This is why he called for the Common Core review and the minimum wage increase and it's why he has made other "reachouts" to liberals and the base that are supposed to help Cuomo's approval.
So far, the plan is not working.
Cuomo's approval/disapproval numbers in Siena have been under water for a long time now and they're not improving despite his efforts (see here, here, and here.)
And here's what Cuomo's really got to be worried about - with the US attorney investigating the Cuomo administration's Buffalo Billion project, those numbers may get worse before they get better.
There is an emerging pattern of donate, donate, get contract, donate again...between the contractors getting state contracts and the Cuomo campaign.
If anything untoward is found in the US attorney's probe, Cuomo's got no safety net to rely on politically to keep himself upright.
Not with these poll numbers.
As for Common Core, I have a difficult time seeing the polling turn around on that.
I dunno, maybe Cuomo's Common Core Review performs a miracle and makes everything swell with the Core going forward.
But given the opposition to testing we're seeing, so long as the CCSS is tied to the high stakes tests that are rigged for high failure rates and firing teachers, I'm skeptical.
