How did you manage to go from "states" to "different countries"? Are you that retarded?

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.

Because in America, when people don't understand a federal program, that means it must be a sinister conspiracy to turn them homosexual.

non-american here, Common core is pure "math" faggotry, so that sounds right.

It's a failed attempt to teach kids math instead of memorizing algorithms.
Too bad the teachers don't understand that.

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.
>>
>>7854345
Yeah thats why they cant photo the material and when one kid did it it was full of anti-intellectual stuff like reading is passive(read wrong) and playing games is not.

Yeah, let something we know is toxic happen, then we solve it

People who rape the integrity of mathematics with ridiculous excuses like this should be jailed for preventing kids to grow up intelligent.

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.

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 ?

The feds got together a panel of experts, who then stole the virginia state standards and told all the other states to follow them.

This was okay, because virginia was practically the only state with decent standards. They had been updating them for 15 years to account for changes in best practices.

I believe the congress voted for common core.

>inefficient ways
>helping nobody

That is just like your opinion, man.

I never learned that because I considered it stupid. I wish I had been introduced to non-new math.

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.
