Common Core Questions. This Is Scary Folks.

I don’t know about you, but if this is what they want to teach today’s children, then pull your kids quick. And for good measure look for the one I highlighted in big bold red lettering. Nothing like a little indoctrination at a 3rd grade level.

Common Core will ruin our Children. What is shown here is only a small part. CC is all about indoctrination of our children to believe what the government and the Globilists want. Let’s not forget about the porn(as far as I’m concerned) and the indoctrination into Islam which is in a number of schools. Parents need to stay on the alert, ask questions and demand answers, do research, check out the publishers and who has a large financial interest or ownership in those companies and parent corporations. Check your children’s books, class notes, test questions and they are phrased. Please.… Read more »

Thank you, Steve, for this important post. The Math questions don’t make sense. Even worse is the political indoctrination: “Government officials’ commands must be obeyed by all.” This is no longer America. Our Founding Fathers must be weeping….

Common Core is nothing but control and conform. Parents need to stand up to this BS!

I have seen a couple of these examples before. The first example I have not. As a college educated professional with a degree in education, I cannot make sense of the “cube stick” question or determine what the student is supposed to gain through the exercise.

Great post, Steve! I’ve also read of Common Indoctrination lessons in which students were taught that Lincoln’s religion was liberal, and another in which they were told to write an essay justifying the Nazi’s extermination of Jews.

Looks like, rather than encourage quick, sharp thinking, it forces, tangled up, confused thinking. Complicates, rather than simplifies. Wastes the students’ time and energy, and a good way to make them feel LOST, and in need of the “state” to tell them what to do. Mind control.

What the heck? (We’re going to have a whole generation of Math-illiterate– innumerate– people.)

Sigh—…I’m overjoyed that the hideous “Every Child Left Behind” is gone……I admire what common core is trying to do— to get out of the old “multiple guess” mentality that turned our kids into a nation of non-readers, non-critical thinkers, & devoid of original thoughts (creativity), passive “receptacles” waiting for me to “give them the right answer”….& our teachers into instruments of the test-making company…teaching ONLY to the test…. (& the test company determines the pace of the school year & WHEN the yr is really “over,” which kids figured out ….is right after the tests are over, even if there… Read more »

I have an undergraduate degree in mathematics (and an M.S. in chemistry), and have created some original maths puzzles, some original work on Benford’s Law, and on hybrid number systems for data compression. Fortunately, I escaped “New Math,” as it was known at the time, by one year. Whew! The primary effect of “New Math,” Common Core math, etc. is to convince the vast majority of kids that they are stupid. (However a small percentage of gifted kids manage to learn maths, in spite of their teachers, and go on to become scientists and engineers.) All educators with more than… Read more »

You’re right, Larry. Ultimately, it comes down to parents. If parents don’t care, that leaves schools to do just what they want.

Larry…how right you are on many accounts…ie…the money-grubbers who smell a marketing opportunity ….changing direction every decade…or less…just to sell another load of books, curriculum outlines….seminar trainings….etc…as I alluded to at the end of my previous post…the next great “thing-ism.” But most of all…BRAVO….as a teacher I’ve always asserted that the education of a child was analogous to a 4-legged stool….it took the equal efforts of the child, the teacher, the parent, and the school administration….These days….that stool often is one or two-legged…so many times the parents and the administration are “MIA” throwing the whole venture/job over onto the teacher… Read more »
