4 x 3 = 11? Did School Official Really Say It Doesn’t Matter if Students Get Simple Math Wrong Under Common Core? | Video | TheBlaze.com
In other words, watch the full video of her statement, not the video which has been carefully cut. As I said, sometimes posts just aren't worthy of an effort to respond.
You clearly, as I've said before, do not seem to understand what you are talking about.Btw, if the school is under THAT MUCH construction. That its not possible to separate the kids from it, maybe the school should be moved to a temporary location instead of putting them near harm.
Instead they get to "enjoy" their recess in a place so small for the number of kids that they get to walk around the yard for 20 min per day. Which is fine if your intention is to train them for a prison yard.
It's pretty obvious if you take the time to think about it. The kids are outside for recess, which kids should be. Kids need a break from the classroom and there is nothing stopping them from playing with the nerf balls the school is providing. However, given the now smaller dimensions of the recess playground, a harder ball could accidentally hit an unsuspecting student, one who may not even be part of the game, and cause harm (where this likely was not a problem before, as the students with the harder balls could play elsewhere). The nerf ball is not likely to do this, even if it hits an unsuspecting student. Do note how the school only changed to this policy once the playground became smaller due to the construction.
Seriously, take a moment to think about it.
Considering the material you continue to provide me, this should be no problem.But no, carry on with your smug superiority
So, hope your dishonest debate tactics works for you.
So your response for being called out on your obvious (if possibly unintentional) false statement is to blame me for dishonest debate tactics? Interesting. You tried to claim you understood common core by showing a video which was dishonestly edited. The lie was you claiming common core says it's just as valid to come up with a wrong answer as a right answer, and you submitted your dishonestly edited video as evidence. This is clearly wrong (not to mention the fact we are talking about common core standards, not the assessment of standards). You were wrong and have been multiple times throughout this thread.
I'd suggest you not criticize my smugness or debate tactics when you're clearly on the wrong end of the debate. Like I said, even one of the most ridiculous "news" websites on the Internet said you were wrong.
So, is it stupid or liar?
Again, I explained the position accurately... You ignored it (even editing out of one of your responses, btw) to try to maintain this unfounded smugness.I'd suggest you not criticize my smugness or debate tactics when you're clearly on the wrong end of the debate.

Don't worry, we'll get to see what happens to the society when this next generation graduates unable to think for themselves thinking they are special since they've never known victory or defeat, and have no character to speak of... I suppose that will be "progress".

I didn't ignore it so much as I responded appropriately to it.and you call bs, ignoring that I had addressed the entire point previously.
Not unfounded at all. And, to be honest, I'm not being smug so much as I am incredulous I'm having this conversation. You have no problem with unsuspecting children being injured, and you post YouTube videos which, once viewed in full, completely contradict your point. It's not smugness, it's simple disbelief.to try to maintain this unfounded smugness.
Yes, how could we EVER top how wonderful we have it right now. The most powerful country in the world owes $17t in debt, and we have a government who is about to put the entire country in big trouble because they are acting like children (but at least they're spying on everyone in the world, so that's good, right?), we have an entire section of the world (Middle East) who have been fighting nonstop for decades, deadly diseases are ravaging adults and children across Africa, large portions of Central and South America being run by violent drug lords, etc.Don't worry, we'll get to see what happens to the society when this next generation graduates unable to think for themselves thinking they are special since they've never known victory or defeat, and have no character to speak of...

You're right, there's no way tomorrow's generation will ever be able to handle such lofty heights.
If that school wants to take away my balls, they'll have to pry them out of my cold, dead hands.
Freedom of speech is not freedom from criticism.
I love sports. I have respect for all sports, but not everyone should have to feel comfortable with doing those sorts of things. I've played soccer, football, basketball, run cross country and track, I've boxed, and fairly soon I'll be taking up wrestling so I'm not saying this from personal experience. However I know plenty of people who honestly wouldn't feel comfortable with the things you've listed, and by no means is that necessarily a bad thing or a fault of the parent. Some people are not oriented towards sports and there is nothing wrong with that whatsoever.
I guess you probably don't feel that way yourself, but soccer is definitely not safer. From all the sports I've done I have had my worst injuries from soccer. At my community league game I had my knee kicked open, and I've had very severe bruising (I'm talking about some serious hematomas) on my shins, also take into consideration the fact that you are required to wear shin guards.
