Wow.

How do we fight this kind of indoctrination of those so young?

How do we survive??
Character still matters.  It always matters.

May 3, 2016 - the day the Republican party left ME.  I am now without a Party, and quite possibly without a country.  May God have mercy!

People need to rise up and tell their local school districts as well as the state legislatures no to common core.  In lieu of stopping it - home school.

Educators claim they want parents involved with the children's learning, but the tests show otherwise, since parent will have no idea what they are talking about. When you have a math problem like, 6 cups take away 4 balls, how do you come up with an answer, unless it's A B C or D, and you guess.

There is only one way, and it cannot involve public schools, which are destined to become ever-more leftist and indoctrinary.

It involves taking one's children OUT OF public schools, regardless of the cost.
One must choose either private or parochial schools instead.

Probably the best would be some kind of academy that endeavours to teach from the viewpoint of Western Civilization as it existed up to the 1950's -- and teach the moral and religious aspects of that civilization as well as the factual history (which itself is no longer being taught in public schools).

Trying to "turn" the leftist public schools and get them back "on track" as they once were (again, as they were in, say, 1955) is as futile as trying to change the course of the Titanic using a rowboat at the stern.

You can't reverse the tide.
But you can literally pull your kids out of it.

A "subtraction sentence" is something along the lines of "6 - 4 = 2"

all things considered, I'm not sure what else one would call it.

the principal problem with Common Core in New York is the asinine way it's being implemented, not the standards it contains.  Instead of doing the common-sense thing and slowly folding the common core standards into the existing curriculum to give teachers and students time to adjust to them, New York simply tossed everyone into the deep end, metaphorically speaking:  the year before last year students were taught and tested according to the old standards; last year students were still being taught according to the old standards, but were tested according to the new standards.  That was a recipe for disaster because whatever their other failings are, the Common Core standards are much higher (and better) than the hodge-podge of standards most states have traditionally used.

Yes I do, because that's how math sentences - what else are you going to call them - are described to them as they start learning math.  And here's an even bigger shocker:  some schools in this country already teach to standards that are as rigorous, or more so, than the Common Core.  The school my daughter used to go to did just that, as I've just found out by seeing the common-core-based homework she brings home from her new school, which this year is at about the same level as the homework she brought home last year from her old school.
