If you didn’t know by now, the federal education standards being adopted by many states are a disaster. By using bizarre methods of estimation in math, what was supposed to make the subject easier to understand is a nightmare for students to figure out. And parents don’t know how to help their children with their Common Core homework!
Watch (above) as Madeline Scotto, a 100-year-old teacher at St. Ephrem’s School from Brooklyn, NY explains exactly what Common Core is. She doesn’t hold back, and describes the importance of the old-fashioned, time-tested methods of memorization and hard work. If only Obama’s Department of Education would listen to such wisdom, America would be in MUCH better shape!
