Thanks to the Common Core Federal Standards, students are reading and playing hockey at the same time now.
There's no more time to simply work on your athletic skills or run or play or work out.
Oh, no - we have to multi-task complex text and informational reading and other so-called 21st century Common Core Federal Standards skills along with art, music, gym and recess.
I have noticed that students no longer work on art in art class anymore.
Nope - they write argumentative essays, just like they do in English class, science class, history class and health class.
It's all argumentation all the time in every class.
That's all kids learn now - informational text, complex vocabulary and argumentative essay writing.
And these one size fits all Common Core Federal Standards are going to help students become more creative and entrepreneurial?
The damage these standards are causing is showing up already in children.
Just wait until they're fully implemented, along with the high stakes "assessments" (i.e., standardized multiple choice tests and essay exams graded by computer programs to those of you not part of the corrupt education/industrial complex.)
A lost generation, that's what we're going to have.
Heckuva job, Barack.
It's hard to believe, but he's been worse than Bush.
