From Common Core to ESSA and Beyond
Book Review of “Common Sense Education: From Common Core to ESSA and Beyond.” By Ernest J. Zarra. Lanham, MD: Rowman and Littlefield, 2016. ISBN: 978-1-4758-2511-4
In Common Sense Education, Ernest Zarra attempts to make sense of the dizzying collection of educational reforms from the final years of the Obama administration. Most of the book’s content is a reaction to consequences from the 2009 Race to the Top initiative, including the widespread adoption of the Common Core.
