You’re just another brick in the wall

Which doesn’t even begin to describe how long this nonsense has been going on. Common Core? Bah. I remember getting propagandized by the government back when I was in public school. What else do you imagine it’s for?

After reviewing this assignment, one mother stated, “I went to elementary school in Poland during communism. This is exactly what I was forced to learn.”

To be fair, I thought the requirement to “write a paragraph describing the thought crimes of members of your family” was a little over the top. But then I remember trying to help my hopelessly perplexed daughter with her homework, and suddenly remembering some very important dad stuff that needed immediate attention in the garage, so I’m no angel. Hey, they’re from the government and they’re ever so much smarter than we are. Who else could be better suited to raise our kids, huh?

    Holy shit on a shingle….

    Sent my son to a private boys school in Australia just about the time the government was trying out a new educational theory by an American sociologist. The fact that it had already been discredited here by no means dissuaded or even slowed them down, Darwinism not being a theory much practiced by the Labour Party. The concept was, according to the Labor Ed.
    minister, that not every child goes to university and every child learns at their own speed so don’t discriminate by using grades, etc. It actually worked very well for those entering the self service gas station employee market ( as long as the cash register made the change.) It also kept Australian Nobel Prizes low so as not to harm the sensitive egos of the working class. I paid $16,000 a year for that.
    Australia could have done what India did when they went looking for a new math syllabus. India simply looked at world math scores and picked the highest, which was Singapore’s. Always seemed sensible to me, but what do I know?
    From a quick Google search;

    “It found Australian teens placed equal 17th in maths, equal 10th in reading and equal 8th in science.

    Asian countries like China, Singapore, Korea and Japan are pulling ahead of Australian students in maths and reading.

    The results show Australian students are slipping in maths performance by about a half a year of schooling compared to 10 years ago.”

To the stake with the heretic!
