3 Examples That Show How Common Core Is Destroying Math Education In America
By Michael Snyder, on July 14th, 2017


Whenever you let federal bureaucrats get their hands on anything they are probably going to ruin it.  During the Obama administration, the Department of Education spearheaded a transformation of American education that was absolutely breathtaking.  Over a period of about five years, Common Core standards were implemented in almost every state in the entire nation.  Unfortunately, this has resulted in a huge step backward for public education in this country.  Common Core has been called “state-sponsored child abuse”, and it is a big reason why U.S. students are scoring so poorly on standardized tests compared to much of the rest of the world.

According to Wikipedia, at one point 46 states had adopted Common Core, but now some states are having second thoughts…

Constitutions are not designed for metaphysical or logical subtleties, for niceties of expression, for critical propriety, for elaborate shades of meaning, or for the exercise of philosophical acuteness or judicial research. They are instruments of a practical nature, founded on the common business of human life, adapted to common wants, designed for common use, and fitted for common understandings.

Everything Imam Obama did had a direct aim of destroying America as we know it.  Common Core is an Obama program with his good buddy, and unrepentant terrorist,  Bill Ayers as a major architect of it.  The program is doing exactly as they envisioned. :dighole:

No Child Left Behind


The No Child Left Behind Act of 2001, President George W. Bush's education-reform bill, was signed into law on Jan. 8, 2002. By all accounts, it is the most sweeping education-reform legislation since 1965, when President Lyndon B. Johnson passed his landmark Elementary and Secondary Education Act. (Technically, the new bill is a reauthorization and revision of that 1965 legislation.) It dramatically increases the role of the federal government in guaranteeing the quality of public education for all children in the United States -- with an emphasis on increased funding for poor school districts, higher achievement for poor and minority students, and new measures to hold schools accountable for their students' progress -- and in the process dramatically expands the role of standardized testing in American public education, requiring that students in grades 3 through 8 be tested every year in reading and math.

The debate over the bill's testing and accountability provisions centered on such questions as whether states would maintain control over their own standards and tests, how the new mandates would be funded, how test results would be reported, where the bar would be set for defining proficiency and adequate progress, how schools would be held accountable, and whether states' test scores would be compared against an independent national benchmark, the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP).

Here is a brief summary of how the final legislation came out on these issues, followed by links to the Education Department and House Committee websites for more detailed information, and to selected articles analyzing the outcome of the bill.

Had a young girl come to me for help understanding her pay stub.  She said it didn't make sense.  I went thu it for her.  Number of hours worked times her hourly rate.  Then less the deductions... etcetera.  After we were done she looked at me and said: "Sometimes numbers is hard."


Yes. Yes they are.

My grandson attends a public school for gifted students and they don't even pretend to use common core math.  He lived with us during 1st grade and you could NOT get him to do all the scribbling they wanted done on his math papers.  Thankfully his teacher didn't mark off for that.
