"This book deserves to be powerfully influential." (Mel Levine)
I have a rather eclectic love of books. I know what I like and I tend not to be a severe critic. If I enjoyed it, it gets 4 or 5 stars.
As an educator, I found this book to be old news. If you are a parent, it might help to explain why the Common Core was founded and why education needs to change in order for your child to be productive in the future. I think it does a good job of explaining why the changes are needed and I think everyone who is against the Common Core really should read it.
I have tried to listen to this book because the topic, research and assertions really interest me. However, the robotic narration makes it very difficult to tolerate.
L.J. Ganser, who narrated Class Warfare did a much better job.
