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.

Common Core Math Assignments; Meant to Make People Stupid?:  Public schools dumbing people down?  It’s more likely than you think…

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.

Common Core, when it is not indoctrinating children with Marxist ideology, makes math problems complex to the point of being incomprehensible.  Here is an example I found on Facebook…

Why take a simple math problem, and make it more complicated that need be?

5th Grade Math Worksheets Published by Scholastic Corporation Push Communist Views?

Share

The following was spotted over at the blog The Bold Pursuit:

…No, this isn’t a rightwing nutjob nightmare – it’s reality…

This worksheet is sold by Scholastic Corporation to teach 5th graders math. Scholastic Corporation is one of the worlds largest book publishing companies and is a major supplier of educational materials for schools, and is deeply involved with the nationalization of education effort called the Common Core Standards.

In this worksheet we can clearly see students practicing something called the Distributive Property, which makes numbers easier to work with by separating or breaking equations into parts (I think- I’m not a math guy).

It DOES NOT mean to ‘distribute the wealth’. In fact, the example on the worksheet of the girl distributing the wealth does not really seem to in any way at all apply to a mathematical concept in which you multiply a sum by multiplying each addend separately and then add the products. The girl is not multiplying anything, is not separating anything, and is not adding anything. All we see in the picture is a girl who is passing out money out of a bag, and the caption ‘distribute the wealth’ implies that the money that she is handing out to other people was taken from someone else who earned it. This DOES NOT demonstrate the Distributive Property.

So why is a major educational company who is designing curriculum for the entire nation putting irrelevant pictures such as these on worksheets in math? One can only speculate, of course, behind the motivations of this company, but from my own experience I would suggest it is to make young children more comfortable with tyranny and dictatorship and teach them to become intellectually comfortable with violating liberty and property rights in the name of some sort of arbitrary moral standard.

Check your kids math books and English books and let me know if any of you can find similar indoctrination attempts by the fascist left in our nation hidden in unrelated and important educational materials. I bet you can find some!
