    27+17 I like rounding up in my head so 27+17 becomes 27+20=47-3=44 it’s always been the fastest way for me. 27+20 is easy for my brain to process but 27+17 is hard for me to process

    As someone with a math background, I see what common core is trying to do. It's trying to teach children to think more deeply about mathematics when trying to solve problems, but there are 2 problems with this that I immediately see: 1. They are not teaching children the most simple method or easiest method to solve the problem, and 2. Making the problem harder than it needs to be in order to teach children to think more deeply about mathematics will cause most of them to not do well in math because this deeper level of reasoning creates a sufficiently high bar that it's mentally analogous to climbing a ladder that has the first few rungs missing. Most students will struggle learning to climb that ladder, and only the brighter ones in terms of problem solving will able to keep up with common core methods.

      Very True. And you shouldn't give KINDERGARTENERS these hard ass word problems that even give adults a hard time. Start easy then get progressively more difficult and complex over the years.

    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.

    This male teacher is obviously in this for some perk, either money or job position. You need to realize that Liberals are crooks, determined to destroy the American Educational System. Every time the government gets involved in any program, it fails. "How do you anger a Conservative? By lying to him, How do you anger a Liberal? By telling him the truth." --President Theodore Roosevelt. "Make the lie big; Make it simple; Keep saying it and eventually they will believe it!" --Adolph Hitler!). (Mainstream Media).

    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. It's the teaching and learning methods that have changed. Learning to read is not sequential, it's not sound based. Math is 10 based like in video. Crazy.

    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.

    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.

    With all this Common Core debate going backward and forward, and the No Child Left Behind, I have to ask this series of questions, and I really want people to think about them. Because this is what I believe is happening to our kids.
    If everyone is being taught 'common standards', so that no child will fail, what is happening to those children that would normally excel? Are they being allowed to forge ahead into higher learning? Or are they being held back to the lower standards?
    If everyone is being taught this Common Core Standard, and are being kept to the lowest standard so that all children succeed. What happens when these kids grow up, and get into the work force. How many of them are going to go into jobs that require higher standards? (Doctors, Lawyers, Engineers, just to name a few)?
    Using the medical profession as an example... when you go to the hospital (or the doctor's office) due to an illness or injury, do you want a doctor that excelled and advanced at a faster pace? Or would you prefer a doctor whose education was average at best?
    If everyone is having to compete for the same low paying jobs, because that is what they are educated for how is that going to affect Unemployment and poverty, since our kids won't be educated for the higher paying jobs?
    Realizing our children will be the next congressman, representatives, and even Presidents, do we really want someone in those positions that don't know what they are doing?

    The concept behind common core math is sensible... We should design our educational system to promote a high degree of numerical literacy. Most of the people I've worked with who were born before the late 70s can do basic arithmetic in their heads while most I know born in the 80s have to reach for calculators and the 90s kids.... Geez... I worked with one who was a chemist and asked to scale a 2 part adhesive mix ratio from 100:40 to a total of 100 parts who looked at an open spreadsheet on her computer, ilted her head back and forth like a confused canine, then belted out "wait,,what was the formula for that again?". Where common core fails is that it over complicates simple concepts and the people teaching our elementary school aged children are mostly mathematically illiterate themselves. I've seen examples where common core homework assignments were marked wrong for interpreting 3*5 as 3+3+3+3+3 instead of 5+5+5. That's just absurd.

    If common core is the concept of having standards then it makes sense to me. But I don't understand why there is something called Common Core Math. Why should the math be different just because you have a standard? It seems to me that this new math happened to get bundled along with the Common Core idea. So the Common Core concept is getting a bad rep because of this new math. As for the new math it may be bad but you can't judge it by the reaction of people who weren't taught it.
