Seriously, I could not believe a grown woman was shoveling this stuff, but lo and behold watch a Common Core promoter actually say that it’s fine that children think that 3 x 4=11. She just wants to know if they can reason and explain how they came to the answer! In other words, there are no right answers in Common Core. Apparently there will be no logic or reasoning in Common Core either. They just want you to be a dumb, useful idiot. If this is going on in math, what do you think would happen if, say a kid claimed Bill Clinton was the first president of the United States?
According to this presentation from Grayslanke District 46 on July 17, the following was stated:
“But even under the new common core if even if they said 3 * 4 was 11, if they were able to explain their reasoning and explain how they came up with their answer. Really in words and oral explanation and they showed it in a picture but they just got the final answer wrong. We’re more focused on the how and the why.”
I kid you not. This is the kind of nonsense that occurs when the Federal government usurps an authority (education) they were not given in the Constitution. The States really need to put them in their place and the dismantling of the Federal Department of Education needs to be dismantled immediately.
