Reading about Common Core can be overwhelming, to say the least!

I will attempt to keep this as basic as I can so if you are new to understanding Common Core these resources will be the most helpful!

First watch this set of videos (about 30 minutes long) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=coRNJluF2O4

Next, read the 4 parts of “Rotten to the Core” that Michelle Malkin has written (this is part 4, check the bottom of this page for the other 3 parts. To be honest it was Part 1 that I first read that lead me to study and then fight CC)
