    Who is the complete freaking idiot that came up with common core? Who don't we go back to the standard we had when America was number 1 in education, like the way kids were taught in the 50's? When they just taught math as math, history as history, reading and writing as reading and writing etc. . It's not that complicated, teach the freaking truth of the subject being taught, not what some government idiot wants it to be.

    Conservative? Yet he says if left up to parents they'd set the bar really low so their kids would pass. I really don't think that's a Conservative trait. Another thing is that assuming that it's from the Federal Government means it must be good. Not so. What's the agenda and why? Well after WW2 it was really pushed, but goes back to the Frankfurt School, Berkeley and out. A socialist agenda.

    Check the suppressed book, The Deliberate Dumbing Down of America. by Charlotte T Iserbyte. Free PDF It's well researched and documented with papers, files and agendas. Many of them Federal Documents but school boards etc. It's a long somewhat tedious book not meant to be a novel. If reading is too tedious or perhaps old tech for you try watching the film IDIOCRACY It basically sums it up.

    I was talking to a teacher recently who was talking about the problems he has because D.C. comes up with lots of new regulations. I asked him what in particular and he said that he must call on an equal number of ethnicities when calling on the kids to solve a problem. So if he asks the class what the answer is to a problem he wrote on the board he has to make sure that when the kids raise their hands that he has to insure that 25% of the kids he calls in to answer the samples he puts on the board are white and 25% are black and 25% are Asian and 25% are Hispanic. He said that he can’t even focus on teaching any more because he is constantly worried about violating some stupid government regulation.

    Common core is the same thing as not teaching kids math and instead something that can't be used even in education, except to teach common more.

    This guy says when all states were competing that scores dropped, he is comparing that to BEFORE public schools mandatory state wide tests, it's no surprise that national common core will result in an even greater loss is scores.

  • Billy Graham

    There needs to be a standard for each subject- an objective measurable standard. If “teachers” are not willing to teach to meet a standard... I find that hard to believe. The odd examples we saw on the cut-aways have got to be fake. Virtually EVERY textbook for a subject touches all the bases. No aspect of the subject is left out. Now what we have here is an unnecessary complication of elementary subject matter - someone is screwing with our kids and our schools.
    And there’s a motive for this I won’t go on about here... suffice it to say “charter schools” and “privatization” of the public schools.

    Common core is an attempt to fix all the problems created through the 60s and 70s. Much of the "math" that is being taught is the way that it used to be taught and the way that smart people do arithmetic without a calculator.
    For example, if you are asked "What is 3 times 97?" you can attack it two ways. The long way of 3x7= 21 and 3x90 =270 so 21 + 270 is 291. The other way is to think 97 is close to 100. 3 x 100 = 300, 3x3=9, 300-9= 291.
    Common core also mandate that addition and multiplication tables be memorized, something that was very common until the 1970s.
    Watch people try to make change without a calculator. Basic arithmetic skills don't exist today.
    Parents don't like common core because they know that they are stupid and don't want to admit it.

    • Gold Winger

      @BrandAccount If we look here you'll set that ACT scores are barely fluctuating, going up or down by about 5% over time. There is a very slight downward trend over the past few years but there has also been a marked increase in the number of test takers, so those data are inconclusive. Also, consider that less than 2/3 of high school seniors take the ACTs. Maybe the non-college bound kids who don't take the tests are the ones most helped by common core. Hmmmm?
      Is common core the answer? Maybe not but its better than the crap that they tried in the 60s. And it is far better than the "there's no such thing as a wrong answer" crap from the 90s.

      @BrandAccount No, I said "until the 70s" Big difference. I lived through the "new math" debacle. I've seen the horrible job that they do today. So called "honors" students who don't know 10% of 100 (seriously) and their idiot parents thought that was OK.
      The problems extend to English with poor vocabulary, worse spelling and abysmal grammar. Kids aren't learning history or geography anymore.
      The system is broken. A few kids make it to the top despite the piss poor system and they are held up as examples of the great success of the current system. To see the failure, ask someone to make change without a calculator or to name the thirteen original states.

      Memorization did go away. In the 90s my kids were not required to memorize tables and were using calculators as early as the second grade in Mont. Co. Maryland, one of the top rated school systems in the country. When I complained, I was told that rote memorization of "math facts" wasn't necessary because every kid carries a calculator.

  • highlights Bottle flip nbanflnhl

    Test for standard information obsorption in children without teacher cohersion during the tests, base the teachers pay on those test results. Test at the beginning of the school year to establish a baseline, and again at the end of the year. The results difference should determine the pay rate for said teacher for the following year. You will be supprised how many teachers will get much better at their job as they compete for their pay. But standardising pay does not benifit the teachers or the children. The less productive teachers may find they would be better off in another line of work, those who learn to adapt will also pass that concept on to the children, which will benifit them in the long run.

    I'm against a countrywide standard for all kids. The beauty of states is that if all states had their own curriculum, then the best states would attract more citizens. Having nationwide standards means that all kids are dumb downed. And, besides, the USA education system is run by socialist-Marxist so, the kids are brainwashed.

    Common core is crap. The Cc standards are very low. My kids spend 90% of their time prepping for tests and 10% taking the tests. And it's not just tests.

    After listening to teachers describe to me the purpose of those rather convoluted math problems, I realized that they couldn't name one single thing that common core could do that finger counting couldn't. It "breaks down numbers" they say. So does finger counting. It create an "understanding" of numbers. So does finger counting! But teachers absolutely hate finger counting, even though there's no evidence that it inhibits a child's ability to do math. In fact, there's a lot of evidence to support that finger counting actually improves math skills! So why are spending hundreds of thousands of dollars on these common core standards, when we just had to teach finger counting? Never understood that.

  • Xastur Speaks
    Xastur Speaks 9 months ago

    In reality that guy 2:50 is a fictional reality adherent. Say a student functions on 5th grade in math, but is in 11th grade. They are on an IEP. What should they be learning: standards that any 5th grader works on in math and it is written into their IEP as such which is the point of an IEP in the first place. Then when state testing comes they are given for Math the same test all 5th grades in that state are given. What will happen is the student will improve (for most students) and no they might not ever reach 11th grade or 12th grade ability level but they will be served better and end up with a more effective education if they go from 3rd grade ability to, say, 8th grade ability level over the course of their K-12 education. That won't happen if the ruling doctrine is against remediation and simply says 'they need to work on algebra just put that they can use a calculator' as part of their IEP. I am saying that the people who run the system on the federal level and those who wrote the IDEA want a system built on a type of fictional reality that baked into the system. It is NOT in the 'best interest of the child' and ultimately harms them. Common Core then is their latest ideological fashion and because they live in a fictional reality it will never succeed nor the meet the stated goals it seeks to achieve. Keep in mind who I am really talking about. Ph.D level educated people, people who hold real power, and people who set policies. I am saying they have not designed a system that is failing, but really a system that is highly successful in achieving its real goals. If you want to achieve the stated goals they say they want they are going about it in the opposite manner which is why you only see dysfunction increase and a system built on platitudes like children being 'left behind'.
    Raising standards is an illusion with common core. Say the average 9th grader at a school is reading at a 7th grade level. Ability level should be how you group these students, not age, and not grade level. Structural changes like this are necessary and Common Core and No Child Left Behind and whatever Obama called his adomination system will all accomplish the same thing: nothing toward fundamental increases in ability level which is what students actually need.
    It is a game, and the real solutions are not ones the elite's want to hear. They don't really do the job of teaching. They peddle and pimp 'solutions' in socialistic ways that in the end sound good but don't lead to tangible and measurable outcomes. Want to change that: empower the teachers, NOT the teacher union, and Not the administration, not the parents and yes empower the students to have choices, but realize many students will make foul choices and harmful choices to other students. You have the right to an education but do not have the right to harm other students. Disrupting the educational process (through disruption of class) harms other children. Three Strikes Your Out needs to be the rule. Want to disrupt class. Great, It won't be due to your race or gender. It will be due to that foul attitude. You will get written up and school systems empowered to expel students if needed. The problem is people in high positions in school districts hold the view that is not a good outcome. Well, the outcome of forcing kids to go to a school (which leads to many of those disruptive issues) is the root problem. Want to solve it. Cleans the school districts of administrators who hold those positions.
    Empower teachers and students who want to be in class and want to learn. Not students who disrupt, do seek self-sabotaging activities. Hold students accountable.
    That is the real true answer and I can tell you right now none of that will be part of the Common Core, nor whatever plan Hillary or Obama had nor Oprah or whomever runs in 2020 or 2024 for the Democrats, and same really goes for Republicans too. What Trump needs is an educational plan with thinking as I am expressing. It will piss off all those who hold a vested interest in the current system and hold real power. Many parents, especially parents of super-baby children and teens won't like it but most of all dysfunctional children won't like it. They do not want to be held accountable.
    Imagine if the parent did not get the truancy ticket. The child did, especially once they reach junior high age, and at least by high school. Solution: microtickets. Imagine you are Tardy to class. You get 3 Tardies and you EARN yourself a microticket which the administrator and SRO manage. You don't pay now, but you will turn 18 and when you do just like you can't get out of speeding tickets you will rack up your little tickets. You can work it off through community service or work a J-O-B and feel the pain as you work to pay off all that disruptive behavior and skipping class you did.
    This type of idea would be both effective and produce results that lead to positive outcomes for the vast majority and for those who find themselves dug into a hole, the same hole the current system would have resulted in their digging themselves into for those a system of second chances to earn back and value what they squandered by their foul choices.
    Realize there are good students who sleep in class because they must take care of siblings for example. I am not speaking of those students. Teachers can easily identify them normally and they can get an outcome whereby they still must do the work but do so outside of class if possible. The difference is the student has the right attitude and wants to learn.
    Want no child left behind. Realize most of the people leaving someone behind are the children (or rather teens) themselves. They choose those outcomes through all those foul self-destructive choices.
    So what they need to know is school is practice to make choices and when you make bad ones and you fail the person to blame is mostly your own self. The blame game of putting it on parents or on someone, anyone, other then their own self or some disability is part of the fundamental problem.
    Teacher empowerment and Student accountability. When a student knows the teacher can, if not play a strong role in getting a student expelled who earns it by their own foul choices, can at least refuse to allow that student in their classroom will be the time when schools truly improve. No you are not allowed in this class without a parent coming to see me. Invite the parent to sit in on class and see and more than likely that parent will see an entitled teen which they already knew how that student acts.
    The system also depowers parents, but that is another story and I tried to focus on the school side of it, but yes this whole thing also requires the way the system limits parents to also fundamentally change.
    I can stand confident none of this will be implemented and will be fought actively against as the current system is built upon the complete opposite ideology and that is why it results in one important partner and component in cultivating a system and culture of dependency which is not simply limited to the United States, so the solutions require you to see how these ideas function on a global scale.

    The reason we have 50states and 50 standards is because it is the state, not the federal government who control education. From the creation of a Department of Education during the Carter administration to Common Core, think of this as a push to federalize and federally control education. Want to control the nation? You don't need to control all 50 states. Merely control the centralized institutions and under Obama that is what happened: institutional capture from the FBI and Justice to so many other agencies, yet this process is far older than Obama, but reached new levels during his administration.

    You don't need to understand the complexity behind how to solve 22-12. You just need to know HOW to do it, not why or how it works. 22-12, you subtract the 2 in the 12 from the one's place 2 in 22. Then, you have a simple problem of 20-10, which is 10.

    I am amazed that people bitch about how education is outdated and should be improved then freak out when it happens. My daughter learned math up to 3rd grade by common core. They change after that. We can not afford to say they must learn the way we did.

    Why not teach classic math the way intelligent people learn it?

    India has more honor role students than America has students. They aren't using common core. So all I see are opportunists selling out our kids.

    common core is design to make children dependent on government as adults, when you accept this purpose than it makes sense

    The federal government is a bully. They literally bribe states and hold out funding if school's do not enact common core in the classroom. To them, whether it's the best or even a good method is irrelevant.
