The below video is emblematic of what is happening in homes across the country. Common Core has taken math to a whole other level – the level of nuttiness. Math problems that use to be solved in 10 seconds or less with one step now take 5-10 steps to solve.
Of course Common Core proponents think we who oppose Common Core are nuts and just don’t understand the complicated world of education and the standards and rigor that needs to be implemented to be the best in the world. Funny when this country actually did things in a much simpler way, we are ahead of the curve globally and were the strongest and most powerful nation on earth. Now with all the “new” advancements in teaching we are lagging behind the rest of the world. That’s progressivism for you and that is what Common Core is – progressivism.
