Very practical, easy to understand guide for parents and educators. Great resource if you're looking for something manageable to read on the Common Core standards.

Gives a general idea of what common core is but if you are getting it to help you help your child this is not the book you are looking for.

Since the Common Core Standards were written by dummies, (that is, people who have no experience educating children) the title of this book is oddly appropriate. Do not try to "adapt" to common core, because it won't be around much longer. After enough parents recognize it for the abomination that it is, it will be relegated to the dustbins of history along with the ITA alphabet, new math, and dozens of other failed ideas.
