honestly, I could not care less about the sex of it. I do but the same amount of care I give to leaving food out for the flies.
The main problem is everything wrong with methods, testing and general indoctrination at the expense of a creating a society capable of surviving.
There is about 50% less actual education going on in common core. It is replaced with instructional information about election issues.
There is a RULE of not letting gifted children advance beyond their class mates. Its wrong for kids to read ahead OR READ at all any material not
included in their school year. Thought police right there.....A "in-class" application of common core methodology is for it to be considered wrong now
for a child to write the correct answer to a problem if his classmates think its another one...even though they are wrong. And so much more.
Every state that has tried common core, (largely liberal and democratic) have made concerted efforts to remove it from their state. Its a complete
failure already. Just wait until 40 states and not just 4 are the ones saying it.
Its absolute and terrible. If you hated no child left behind, as even most people who defended it then do now, then you will hate this since this is
FAR worse. No way to opt out, more absurd practices and methodology with not one ounce of supporting data as to why it is better, a reduction in the
quality of education, all of it. This is worse in every way.
Trained mathematicians and literature experts say that the standards, if they can even say they are that, will make our children fall 2 years behind
the USA now. This isnt a model for education that has been tried in other countries and been found to work. This like no child left behind was made by
people who are not even educators.
