As time wears on, we see more and more examples of exceptionally inappropriate Common Core assignments. Here is the latest, because all fourth graders need to know about how daddy got busted in adultery.
“Making inferences is a skill with which students often need much practice.” So begins the syntactically challenged introduction to a series of Common Core-related educational materials at a site called eReadingWorksheets.com.
The worksheets and the site were created by Donald Morton, who — judging from the photograph accompanying the bio under “About” — is a cat. He is also, he informs the visitor, “a prolific online reading, language arts, and teaching enthusiast. Holding a B.A. in English from Northern Illinois University, and as a masters of arts candidate at Northeastern Illinois University, Mr. Morton has been immersed in the higher study of the reading and language arts for the last decade.”
Common Core seems commonly horrific. Then again, it is a government program. And, not only is it ia government program, it is run by democrats. Consider that an amplifier of the failure.
