• Examines the politics of the Common Core standards across all 50 states

• Highlights the similarities and differences between Common Core and earlier attempts at state and national standards

• Suggests which political issues could undermine the Common Core State Standards Initiative—and which are simply long-running controversies in American educational politics

• Gives details about the major interest groups and think tanks with stakes in the Common Core controversy
