Accelerating the deliberate dumbing down of America…
My brain hurts enough just reading news stories about common core, so I know it can’t be good for the kids who are mercilessly subjected to it firsthand.
In this assignment, seven-year-old kids in 2nd grade were told that they were wrong if they simply subtracted one number from another to find the correct answer. That’s apparently not considered the “friendly” way to do math. Instead, they were told to add numbers to each number first, then subtract *those* numbers to get the right answer.
Anyone else feel an aneurysm coming on…?
“What you’ve just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul.”
