Social Engineering: 3 Examples That Show How Common Core Is Destroying Math Education In America

TPTB are deliberately traumatizing your children & are messing with their brains.

Social engineering…

3 Examples That Show How Common Core Is Destroying Math Education In America:

Whenever you let federal bureaucrats get their hands on anything they are probably going to ruin it.  During the Obama administration, the Department of Education spearheaded a transformation of American education that was absolutely breathtaking.  Over a period of about five years, Common Core standards were implemented in almost every state in the entire nation.  Unfortunately, this has resulted in a huge step backward for public education in this country.  Common Core has been called “state-sponsored child abuse”, and it is a big reason why U.S. students are scoring so poorly on standardized tests compared to much of the rest of the world.

According to Wikipedia, at one point 46 states had adopted Common Core, but now some states are having second thoughts…

King’s College will ‘replace busts and portraits of its founding fathers with ethnic minorities after student pressure’:

14 Facts That Prove That America’s Absolutely Pathetic System Of Public Education Deserves An ‘F’ Grade

14 Facts That Prove That America’s Absolutely Pathetic System Of Public Education Deserves An ‘F’ Grade:

One thing that almost everyone can agree upon is that our system of public education is broken.  We spend far more money on public education than anyone else in the world, and yet the results are depressing to say the least.  Considering how much we are putting into education, we should be producing the best students on the entire planet, but it just isn’t happening.  Personally, I attended public schools from kindergarten all the way up through law school, and the quality of education that I received was extremely poor.  Even on the collegiate level, most of the courses were so “dumbed down” that even the family dog could have passed them.  And of course millions of other people all over the country would say the same sorts of things about their own educations.  Many refer to what is happening to our society as “the dumbing down of America”, and if we don’t get things fixed the United States is on course to become a second class nation.

If you believe that I am exaggerating, I would like you to consider the following numbers.  The following are 14 facts that prove that America’s absolutely pathetic system of education deserves an “F” grade…

Study: Nearly half of millennials struggle with news literacy and critical thinking

Study: Nearly half of millennials struggle with news literacy and critical thinking:

The ability to identify fake news and other false information has never been more important. That makes critical thinking skills a must – yet according to new national study from edtech firm MindEdge Learning, millennials struggle in this area. The survey provides a sobering look at the extent to which millennials need to sharpen their critical thinking skills. It also shows that a large majority of these young people understand the importance of critical thinking in the knowledge-based economy — an understanding that may drive more of them to improve these skills in the future.

The study, commissioned by MindEdge and conducted by Research Now, probed the attitudes of 1 000 millennials who are currently in college or are recent graduates. The goal of the research was to evaluate this group’s critical thinking skills and determine whether they’re able to separate fake news from factual information. The results were not promising: 44% of respondents received a relative ‘F’ when it comes to these skills.
