NEW ORLEANS -- The town hall meetings have been crowded. The rhetoric has been heated. But the number of people who are familiar with Common Core is few, according an annual statewide survey to be released Monday.
Among its many findings, the 2014 Louisiana Survey, conducted by the Public Policy Research Lab at the LSU Manship School of Journalism, also shows that three out of four of the state’s residents want to see the state spend more on higher education and are willing to pay a penny more in sales taxes to make that happen.
