Synopsis

Common Sense about Common Core breaks down everything you need to know about the Common Core, from how it was implemented to where we are now. Common Core has emerged as a significant political issue and, therefore, a concern with the general public. Special interest groups are spinning messages which are inaccurate or biased in order to confuse parents and the public. Therefore a transformative educational initiative developed on sound principles is jeopardized because special interest groups, including politicians seeking to garner support from these groups, are taking positions based on inaccurate information. This book will show that Common Core is a necessary initiative for achieving America's Race to the Top.
