Thanks Mercedes! Two things that caught my eye right away were the 90% with “some or comprehensive knowledge” of CC and the ridiculous graph that you pictured in your post. Doing my best to determine the percentages from the graph, I came up with about 150 “supporters”. Still less than half of the teachers surveyed if I round up. My favorite was the 100% of one percent of 12th grade teachers. It boggles my mind that they would even put it in there. I look at that graph and it tells me that the majority of teachers in the majority of grades are not supporters of CC.
