    No way! They are terrible, coming from a student.

    Poll would be more informative if you would provide some information about what "common core" is.

    Common core is national educations standards that must be currently implemented or a state loses Fed funding (roughly 10%).

    I agree in principle with national standards. Without details, I can't answer whether or not I agree in practice.

    Of course, this does sound like another "No Child Left Behind", in which the Fed demands certain scores on standardized tests or they'll cut funding-- without providing anything to actually improve those test scores, and without taking into account that those scores are poor predictors of lifetime productivity.
