I've read a bit about it but I feel like people are getting explanations from somewhere I can't reach. (Not from the US so it's not grabbing my attention all that much)
To my understanding it's some standard for primary school education and it doesn't look all that bad. The worst I've seen of it is questions who have very strong political messages, and a question about which day of the week has an "i" in it. Which I can see is a concern but if it's for primary school I don't really see why people are getting upset.
>>7854339 >>7854342 It was one question that could easily be stripped. It's not a cause for concern is what I'm saying. Reasonable legislators would remove it if it became an issue. The response seems disproportionate.
>>7854283 > Some kids don't have the "privilege" to get the education that I had > So we dumbed down our education to a completely pointless autistic version > Instead of teaching them the proper classic math my genration and every other generation before me has learned.
People who rape the integrity of mathematics with ridiculous excuses like this should be jailed for preventing kids to grow up intelligent.
>>7854282 Common Core is a framework for education. Basically says things like "second grade students will learn how to add and subtract multiple digit numbers." "fourth grade students will learn about the civil war."
A national standard of education. Where the anger comes in, is that the clarifying documents, suggest that the best practice for teaching maths is to expose the students to multiple methods to help foster a deeper understanding of the subject. The ignorant public (and sometimes ignorant teachers) see these documents as instructions. They assume that because one outlined method of solving an equation is shown in a picture on the internet, that students are being forced to solve all similar problems in this method.
>>7854442 > A national standard of education Who decided this to be the standard ? Was there a vote or something ? > to expose the students to multiple methods to help foster a deeper understanding of the subject. Teaching them inefficient ways to solve math problems is helping nobody. Why don't you give them apples and solve 4 digit math operations like that, so they get a new perspective ?
>>7854464 While it hasn't made it out of the lecture hall, currently the education academia are leaning towards removing homework. Because a parent badly helping his child with homework is worse for the childs education than no homework at all.
