Overview

Cutting through the hype from supporters and defenders of the CCSS, this book documents the process for the adoption and implementation of the Common Core. This insightful critique focus on these issues:

2. A national student database is banned by federal law but privacy laws were gutted so the CCSS could access unprecedented information.

5. The CCSS, a public policy document, is privately copyrighted and can’t be changed, modified, or corrected.
