Dream On

"It’s a show about love, sex, careers and a time in life when everything is possible. It’s about searching for commitment and security - and a fear of commitment and security. And, most of all, it’s a show about friendship.”

#CommonCore This is how the Government gets the unemployment rate.



What. The. Fuck. Is. This. Shit.

what “progressive” education in america is turning into.

THE FUCK’S THIS SHIT

what the hell is that supposed to even mean? I had to read over the explanation twice, and I’m taking algebra 2. 

I think it’s supposed to be teaching kids that 8+5 and 10+3 are the same thing, but that’s not really phrased well?

The question is confusing as hell.
I mean, yeah- you pass by 10 on the road to 13 using the 8+5 expressway, but you don’t stop there.
It’s an idiotic concept to begin with. Why bother asking the question? What possible purpose does that answer have?
I feel like I’m taking crazy pills.

My 8 year old niece is currently dealing with this bullshit. Let me tell you, I have never felt so bad for her in my life. She has literally cried in the shower saying “I don’t get it, why don’t I get it”. Simply because of the common core method bullshit. If you went into a job today and used this common core crap, you would either be fired, or not get the job. This is the worst thing to happen to the public school system since I can remember.

Is it some kind of lateral thinking exercise? If so- why are they trying to get 3rd graders to think this way?
What is the lesson here?

as every day passes, homeschooling looks like an increasingly viable option

I’m still trying to figure this out????

also, judging by the child’s handwriting and the seeming “simplicity” of the question, the child is probably not even at a level of cognitive development where they could possibly understand the vague concept of conservation needed here. so that’s distressing.
