Common Core Math Problem Blasted by ParentTypical regressive action: overly complex and leading to a false conclusion. 

Common Core seems to be uncommonly stupid.  As social media allows the distribution of the nonsense, more and more Americans are finding out that the only thing common about the core is that it’s intrusive, nonsensical, and full of propaganda.  For the latest, here is a parent’s response to an overly complicated math problem…

Of course, practical reality has nothing to do with education.  In fact, I believe that is intentional.  Reality doesn’t cooperate with the regressive agenda.  Common Core should be called Common Corpse-at least Obama would get it.

Public schools are agents of liberalism.  Therefore, expect force and censorship to be part of the methodology.  Take the example of Katherine Duran, who was “suspended” from her son’s school for opposing Common Core…

A school in Sacramento, California, has suspended a mom over her stance against Common Core.

You read that correctly, the Mark Twain School in Sacramento has told the mother of a 12-year-old student that she has been suspended for two weeks. Police in Sacramento served the 14-day suspension to Katherine Duran in her home following a disagreement with the school over the soon-to-be enacted Common Core standards.

Initially, the school claimed that Duran has distributed information about how to opt out of Common Core.  However, that is not the case…

The concerned mom signed an “opt-out” form and asked her son to take a few copies to school and hand them out to his friends to take home to their parents. The school’s principal then confiscates the forms. When Duran heard that the papers were taken away from her son, she visited the school and confronted principal Rosario Guillen. It was that meeting, according to the school, that triggered the police visiting the Duran home with the suspension order.

And how did the school respond to factual information being distributed regarding Common Core?

Duran sent us a copy of the opt-out information that was offered by her son to his classmates. This is the first page of a four-page set that of papers contained the basic information about Common Core’s Smarter Balanced Pilot Testing Program as well as instructions on how to opt-out of the testing, and  a set of blank opt-out forms.

During the course of our conversation, Duran explained that the first day her son handed some of these information packets to his classmates, the school took notice. The principal made an all school announcement over the public address system stating that, “inappropriate materials” were handed out by a student and all of them needed to be turned in to the school. Christopher reportedly told his mom that all of the packets were collected and turned into the office.

So, when the school discovered that children might escape their control, they confiscated the information, and then attempted to punish the MOTHER of the child that distributed it.

So, it follows the standard liberal treatment…

1.  Engage in some tyrannical or inept activity (usually both).

2.  Cover up any evidence of the failure, or conceal ways to escape it.

3.  Punish those that expose the failure, or assist people in escaping said failure.

Common Core Math Assignments; Meant to Make People Stupid?

Share

Take a look at this common core math assignment and ask yourself if it is intentionally meant to make children stupid…

stupid common core

Mina Boyd, whose kindergartener came home with a Common Core math workbook this week, noticed her daughter’s unusual frustration regarding one lesson entitled “Count and Write 20.”

“Count and tell how many pieces of fruit. Write the number,” the assignment asks.

To Boyd’s surprise, the math problem only included 19 countable apples despite several surrounding problems correctly showing 20.

“They ask her to count and write 20. So she counts, counts again, and again, and says ‘mom, there’s only 19,’” Boyd explained on a Facebook post.

According to Kyle Olson, founder of the Common Core watchdog site Education Action Group, the workbook is produced by a well known publisher with deep Common Core ties.

“The lesson is part of a “Go Math” Common Core-aligned curriculum published by Houghton Mifflin Harcourt,” Olson noted.

And there you have it.  Government organized  stupidity inflicted on your children, at your expense.

Fourth Grade Common Core Assignment Uses Adultery as Topic

Share

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.
