Lawmakers Mock Common Core Opponents With This Insulting Bill

commoncore

Parents across America are beginning to recognize the truth behind conservative predictions regarding the federal education guidelines known as Common Core. Instead of emphasizing traditional academic standards, teachers are now stuck with a curriculum that puts an adherence to political correctness above all else.

Even when actual teaching does take place, the methodology used is often convoluted, using concepts foreign even to parents attempting to help their young children with their math homework.

 

 

 

While this has caused undeniable stress on students, parents, and teachers, many legislators apparently believe the next generation is best served by a one-size-fits-all federal standard. Incredibly, state legislators in Missouri are not above openly ridiculing Common Core’s detractors with an outrageous bill meant to portray them as lunatics.

In addition to the typical runaway spending included in the state’s proposed budget, one Republican congressman wants to add $8 to purchase tinfoil hats for these concerned Americans.

Rep. Mike Lair wants the money to purchase “two rolls of high density aluminum to create headgear designed to deflect drone and/or black helicopter mind reading and control technology.”

Lair, a retired teacher, is obviously a fan of the widely unpopular curriculum, as are the other members of the House education funding panel who voted in favor of his nonsensical proposal. Far more Americans likely believe those who still approve of Common Core should be fitted for a tinfoil hat.

Even the National Education Association’s president has come out in recent days with his biting criticism of the standards.

“Seven of ten teachers believe that implementation of the standards is going poorly in their schools,” Dennis Van Roekel wrote in a correspondence with the union’s members.

He went on to confirm that “two-thirds of all teachers report that they have not even been asked how to implement these new standards in their classrooms.”

The simple fact is that, like almost any federally mandated proposal, the stated results are being obfuscated by government ineptitude and corruption. Tragically, it seems the only individuals incapable of recognizing that are those with the power to impose this disaster on everyone else.

    These examples are straight out of the text books! Why do it in 2 steps? A computer would commit suicide if it had to add like that! And Q15: Juanita (Juan need a) number of friends? Whomever imposes these standards should take a test on the subject matter and any of them getting less than 100% should be shot for killing America’s future!

    • "Juanita (Juan need a)" :-)

      If Juanita lived in the sanctuary State of Maryland she wouldn't need to buy any stickers for her ILLEGAL IMMIGRANT friends…CASA de Maryland would provide her with all the stickers she needs for free, at tax-payer expense.

    This common core is nothing more then common crap, I have seen the level of stress it has cause my 11 year old nephew, there was nothing wrong with the old math that we learn in school many years ago and you to the correct answer much quicker, this common core crap all is doing is dumbing down our kids and adding unnecessary stress

    “Common Core Roots Lie in Ties Between Obama and Bill Ayers” " the very roots of Common Core are in the early ideas generated by him and his fellow radical community organizer, Bill Ayers"
