Please note: Compiling and producing the CC Weekend Reads over the last year has been a useful tool for many including myself. However, due to time constraints, family obligations and other projects I cannot continue to keep these posts up.

This edition will be the last installment of the Common Core Weekend Reads.

I will be continuing to cover the NC Academic Standards Review Commission and Common Core topics in North Carolina.
