    My issue with common core is the mathematics, they seem to keep coming up with more and more complex ways to teach basic math, the United States is pitifully behind on math and sciences. Some of the ways they're teaching common core math are just stupidly complex above what is nessecary.

    It's actually a better method that teaches better understanding of the problem, rather than just arriving at an answer. Parents weren't taught this, so they struggle. They assume since they have trouble, it must be bad.

    Math is all about the answer. Period. You must get the right answer as effeceintly as possible. And since every generation since the boomers is getting worse at math each generation, maybe the parents struggling who score better at math should be the people emulated, instead of arriving at these frankensteinian theorems, I guarantee you they're not teaching lattice multiplication and partial sums formula in china and India.

    My son is just in Kindergarten, so I have very little exposure to what common core really is (especially with us moving during the school year to a different state). And it's been a while since I was in school (I especially don't remember how I learned what I did in K-3 at least, I just know I was ahead of most students in my class during most of those grades), so I have little to compare it to from my own experience.

    I will say it is annoying to get the same math homework over and over again, each week when my son is working on a higher level. We (my son and me, his father, and my brother, who are working with him on this) are starting multiplication, while the homework is very basic addition/subtraction 10 or less. The method seems like it would be better for overall learning (understanding why) but the implementation just seems cumbersome and slow, especially for kids who are ahead/learn faster.

    While common core seems to be the most difficult way you could possibly teach simple math, I doubt it will turn anyone gay. Where do they get this stuff?
    - There was never a good war, or a bad peace.
    - Idealistically, everything should work as you planed it to. Realistically, it depends on how idealistic you are as to the measure of success.
    - Better to be a pessimist before, and an optimist afterwords.

    I'm sure that many of them would be happy to hire you and put you out there to make money for the firm if you met their minimum requirements.

    If you have any evidence to the contrary, I'd like to see it.
    If you have evidence of you claim, we would like to see that too.

    Sounds like the guy is an utter moron.

    I wonder and I'm just going to ask if anyone on the Debate Politics Forum agrees with Glenn Beck when he says that Common Core is "breeding an entire new generation of slaves'?
    Slaves? No. Good little idiots, sure seems like it.
