Nigger have you seen the most current shit? They aren't taught "ones", "tens", and "hundreds" places anymore in simple math. That's why fucking everyone is failing. They have no concept of numbers actually representing something and are instead taught numbers as useless symbols. I have students taking geometry in math and aren't taught trigonometry. In English classes before they read To Kill A Mockingbird, they are taught not to be friends with white people who have family lines that owned slaves, and since nobody really knows whose families did or didn't own slaves then that's all white people. It is literally systemic segregation in action at a high school level, which will stick with them their whole lives. And while common core isn't necessarily from the federal government, it's supported by the federal gov, and states that don't adopt it get less funding. If schools don't get funding, then there's no schools. 42 of 50 states have taken it up, so I would say that's a significant amount of influence. And there's a national board that decides what standards are taught and the order in which they should be taught it and if you don't do it that way then you can get fired, so when I have some observer coming to my class I have to make a cheat day basically and then continue on with my style of teaching the next day. Maybe I'm just seeing a shitty side because of what state I'm in, but my state has tried to repeal it twice but they end up not repealing basically because of the funding and because they are so deep into the system that removing it would require a complete overhaul of the educational system, which needs to be done, but would take more time and money than people have to offer. Sorry math isn't your subject, but the bar shouldn't be set at the least common denominator. There's no difference anymore for what's taught between regular and honors classes, the only difference is how much tests results are scaled when they do standardized testing, which literally happens year round. If you get an inside look into the way core is supposed to function then you would agree that it is the worst thing possible for education.

I mean sure, if you wanna say that colleges didn't take a very jarring, sudden, turn in the last few years I guess you COULD say that.

I can't say common core is directly designed to make people stupid, but it's absolutely a dumbing down of basic skills required for no clear reason.

I'm a teacher and common core is cancer for the educational system. I don't follow it one bit. I teach how I want to and my students out-perform almost all others in not just my school, but also the district, in my subject. I do teach biology, so core doesn't interfere much, but I've seen the English and math stuff and it's awful. They are taught propaganda in English and everything is so dumbed down in math that I can't imagine any students going on to be engineers or anything that has to do with higher level mathematics. By making them dumber and following propaganda, they are becoming docile sheep.

The math courses I went through as a kid were total torture. I hated going through homework because it was always show your work this way, etc etc and repetition. Lattice multiplication? Partial quotients? Like those were ever mentioned again. Useless dumbing down of math isn't new.

So "common core", which is designed by the state government, not the federal (the federal government just says "kids aged 15 should be able to multiple and divide etc), tries to teach kids different ways to look at problems (how do you add 29 and 9? Don't carry the one and write it down, but instead take one away from 9 to make 30 and go from there) and it looks fairly useful from my perspective. Learning how to do math mentally is way more useful than just slogging through example problems.

I've ran into people that need calculators to add up 22 and 34. Most people in america are dumb. Education textbooks change every 5 years anyway, and everybody freaks out when they do, but smart people still come out of it regardless and most of the population stays dumb.

The entire school system is an "always listen to your superiors" workshop. Ever correct a teacher that was wrong in school? get ready to be thrown in detention for "disrupting"

Even so, that's been the case for decades. It's not like some kind of phantom indoctrination program suddenly appeared in the last five years.
