Textbook Executive Reveals Real Reason Behind Common Core

It looks like Project Veritas and founder James O’Keefe have struck again – and right at the heart of the liberal educational establishment. The truth-seeking group set up another sting operation with Common Core as its target – and they hit a dead-center bullseye.

Project Veritas has previously exposed ObamaPhone cheaters and helped shutdown the left-wing advocacy group ACORN.

The group taped an undercover video interviewing the West Coast sales manager for textbook publisher Houghton-Mifflin Harcourt, Diane Barrow. She revealed that her employer values profits over the needs of American school children, and had this blunt admission:

“I’m in it to sell books. Don’t even kid yourself for a heartbeat… I hate kids.

“It’s all about the money. What are you, crazy? It’s all about the money.

You don’t think that the educational publishing companies are in it for education, do you? No, they’re in it for the money.

A Brooklyn school teacher, Jodi Cohen, confirmed Barrow’s comments while speaking to an undercover journalist at what appears to be a bar.

“Oh my god, it’s all a money game. And the things is, what they do is, they create some new f***ing system that f***ing sucks to sell more books, and then we have to learn something new with the students. So it’s bullsh*t.

And if you needed confirmation that folks who work in education are liberal and/or Democrat, here it is. Ms. Barrow also gave her opinion about the 2016 presidential race:

“Who is listening to Donald Trump. I mean, come on. Do you know who is listening to Donald Trump? It’s all old, white men that are frustrated with their lives. It’s like a midlife crisis. And so, he doesn’t know policy, he doesn’t even – has he ever read the Constitution?”

Update: After the video was released, Ms. Barrow was fired by her employer.

Now we know the real reason for the insane Common Core curriculum: Money.

In the private sector, a business only makes money when they give customers what they want. In the public sector, not as much. This is more proof that parents should pull their kids out of the public school system, and send them to a private school – or do it themselves and home-school.

What’s your take on this damning video about Common Core?

  1. Common Core is an improvement over the old system of teaching to the test. It offers a change to a concept of problem solving but then fails to do that with the testing practices which have become a sham. Some school districts in Idaho have tried it and some have rejected it but took some ideas from it. CC is NOT a government mandated means of teaching. Obama has seen the light on it and changed the feds’ approach to using it.

    • Common Core is farcical. Teaching techniques are lacking, parental involvement is lacking, common sense learning practices are lacking, discipline is lacking. The whole of public education system is now in shambles and is a sham in and of itself.

    • It is if your district wants any federal dollars to help pay for education! CC is the worst thing that could have ever happened to public education. Many of us “old” teachers never taught to the test, but instead concentrated on actually teaching students learnable skills and lessons, like expository writing, common sense arithmetic, actual history.

      What light has O seen?

      • onerightstand,
        O saw the fact that CC was not an answer that can be dictated to schools, which he had not done anyway. He opened up the whole mess to state and local schools. Evidently someone in his administration realized that CC was not working as hoped. It was lacking when it came to updating a lot of rural area teachers here. Instruction to them was poor. So now we are sort of back to square one. We have some districts here (Idaho) that did OK with their modified CC program and better than those who followed it as it was.

      • oneriightstand,
        What light has O seen? Pardon my stupid statement. He was shown that CC did not work as well and I believe the CC requirement is off the table. I am glad to know of an “old” teacher who taught with some sense. I have been very vocal on how we teach kids. Since my college days I have opposed teaching to the test and had to resort to some innovative methods to teach one granddaughter how to understand math and reading. She could not comprehend numbers so I resorted to jelly bean math so that she cold begin to conceptualize numbers. I had to resort to teaching her specific words and how to spell them, then put words into sentences. It took over one school year to get her able to read decently but I succeeded. She moved away from where I live but she was capable of continuing. She did graduate from high school with decent grades.

        • Good for you. The fact that your methods worked with your grand-daughter should be plenty of proof that there are few other ways to actually teach things like numbers or words which become the foundations for many other things.

          CC is the continuation in a federal way of the dumbing down of the population. When a teacher says that 3 x 4 can be 11 as long as the student can write down his/her feelings about why it is 11, then we are in big trouble. And, that’s exactly where we are!

          • onerigtstand,
            I believe schools are no longer required to use CC. But no teacher should be abusing our education system at all. As I have stated several times in these posts, the testing formula of CC is badly causing failure of education. The two major changes absolutely necessary for students are communication skills improvement and problem solving. Multiple choice questions are much faster to grade but do noting to indicate whether a student has achieved those skills. Only short essay questions can measure those achievements.

          • Maybe in your state, but CC is being used in most states because then the district/state is given federal dollars to offset the expense of education. In my state, no districts have been willing to forego the federal money aka bribe! And, if anyone suggests doing that, then the public is told how horrible the schools will become without those funds!

          • My state did not receive the email, so please post so that I can send it to my local school districts!

      • He’s seen that it is relatively easy to twist the original structure so as to use it to confuse and mislead those it was originally intended to help. Our children. He has done so under the guise of improving the original program.

        • Obama is way too lazy to do anything like that. Common Core is an unmitigated disaster and has been since its inception. It was designed and heralded by Bill Agyers (anyone remember the Weather Underground of the 1960’s and the bombings on college campuses?) and Bill Gates supported in order to get his softeware into every educational institution for guaranteed sales.

          Neither of these people is an educator and since 1970;s, all scores on student tests have been going DOWN!

          Why is there “remedial” reading and math offered at most state colleges and universities now? Thought students should have already known how to do those things after 12 years of college.

          Common Core has made teacher salaries higher, unions wealthier, added myriad layers of administration and done nothing to improve learning!

          • Sorry, onerightstand but he hasn’t showed any signs of laziness in his perpetual efforts to destroy this nation. He has worked long and hard at it and has been incredibly successful.

    • I am delighted to hear Obama has seen the light on something, it must be hard to do that with one’s head up one’s own a-s. In Detroit, 46.000 students are out of school due to a teacher sick out, out of those numbers, only 4000 can read by the time they reach 8th grade. In Chi town, home of the prez, the teachers are the highest paid in this country, according to the news, but the kids are failing there too. Let there be light…enlightenment…somewhere.

      • Phyllis,
        I heard about Detroit. What a mess. I believe the school system might as well fold its tent. I am not surprised that many oft these teachers are fed up with whatever system of education they have been using. I am a form believer that students should not be taught by lecture method and held to rote memory for exams.. Kids have to be challenged to learn and then bring about learning methods that include problem solving on their part. They have to be able to write in a way that communicates their words to torchers. Without such a system the kids are doomed to failure.

        • I am still reeling from from the kids not being taught to read or write in cursive, what statesmen we will have in the future, I guess the new trend is those that pee together will rule and reign. What crap. Decades ago I married into a family of teachers, I was 18 and intimidated but I learned a lot about teaching from those old time school teachers. They taught, we learned, but we had discipline and respect also, and there is the root of the problems kids are having today.

          • Phyllis,
            You cannot lecture to kids by the hour and expect them to sit quietly and pay attention. On the other hand, if you encourage investigation and seeking answers to questions, you have all the discipline you need. They will seek to learn.

          • There is a big difference between the meaning of lecturing children in elementary school and actually teaching, which is a whole different ballgame. Lectures are boring for the most part and one is rarely a participant. I find it amazing that we had generations of kids that learned fundamental education by teaching, not lectures. Does this work? yes it does. I have had a very positive result for the last 18 months interacting with a cerebral palsy young person who cannot talk. All the lecturing over the years combined with new types of approach absolutely did not work and because it didn’t work this young person was labeled unteachable and just left floundering…and they just don’t get it why he can learn from me but not from them…very bright and talented young person and no one knew that he could even read or count. It is all about GETTING money in exchange for nothing worthwhile GIVEN, especially among the challenged.

          • Phyllis,
            Boy, are we on the same page. I worked with mentally challenged people and one of my clients was autistic. He was in his mid 50’s. He could not speak a word. Within a matter of a month I had him counting to ten and reciting the alphabet from A to H. I had him saying yes and no but he did not yet make the connection yet. I left the company and retired so I have no idea how much I could have taught him to speak. I taught him to do some basic carpentry and plumbing as well as painting what he made. I had two other clients at the time who had other mental challenges and I made headway with them as well but they could talk. I taught them all how to make a variety of things for themselves and even some of the lady clients as well. Such mentally challenged people are not necessarily stupid. They deserve a chance to learn. I began by challenging them to make themselves a step stool for the apartment since some of the storage space was to high for them and even me to reach without using a chair. Each one made one. We made some flower boxes for the girls and then made coat racks for the office. Everyone was amazed at what they could do an d the guys we amazed that no one ever bothered to try to teach them anything at all. These projects were accomplished over a period of about two months.
            Step 1. Create a challenge and interest.
            Step 2. Make the project fun.

          • This young man is probably, by native intelligience, smarter than I am and incredibly intuitive about people and their motives. He also was able to paint almost like Monet and none of his own family had a clue. When I saw the first painting I realized it wasn’t that noticeable until I had it framed. The negative side is he can be very manipulative, but then he had to be to survive the lacks in all other areas. He is a great kid surrounded by people that are not so great but they can talk.

          • Phyllis,
            One guy I had suffered from Downs Syndrome and he was very manipulative. But he was a good guy also. He was also the most literate of the three. He had his own bank account and cold read.

    • It shouldn’t be used at all, The Federal Government Pays School Systems around the country to get rid of the teaching programs they had and only use common core.
      It is a bunch of crap to Indoctrinate your Children put together By Progressive Democrats and RINOS to teach only what they think you should know. Heavily supported by Obama and Bill Gates who’s companies stand to make Millions replacing the Old Curriculum with their new version of the world and US history.

      • Robert,
        It is my understanding that CC is no longer required for schools to use. It is dead as a requirement but can still be used all or in part depending on the state if they so choose. Also, states have a right to direct what material schools can use. CC never did specify what was to be taught but rather a format on how to teach the subject matter. Some examples were quite liberal and objectionable. There is a lot of misguided info about CC out there. I got the data from the major local school district. The big failure is the testing method. It utilizes the same old multiple guess questions. A really BAD idea. W have to teach kids to use the language they are learning in school and how to solve problems. Multiple guess questions will never accomplish that.

        • Last I heard, The Dept of Education was STILL shoving it down EVERYBODIES throats! When is that going to stop?? If ever under the Obama admin.?

          • tnetcenter,
            I believe I just answered this in my last post. Idaho has an open door policy on CC. Some school districts have used it and others have not. But it is my understanding that it is no longer mandatory.

      • tnetcenter,
        Obviously you know little about education practices. What is being taught and how it is being taught are two different issues. I am dealing with the later and you are dealing with the former. Any teacher can abuse what is being taught. Liberal ones do. Even schools and school districts can also require liberal ideas. That is not what Common Core was about. It’s intent is to bring forth new ways to teach, not what to teach. But the intent has not always been followed. CC also backfires when they use multiple choice exams.

  2. It’s not just the money,the new books are slanted toward the liberal agenda, & in the case of history books, history is changed to benefit the left.

  3. I agree with Steven. It’s not just the money. It is an orchestrated program, championed by liberal democrats, socialist, and RHINO’s to brain wash our children, from the moment they enter school, to hate the USA and trash talk it every chance they get. You only need to listen to what university students say to get a complete understanding of how far down the road to total disaster this country has allowed itself to travel. These people have no idea of how lucky they are to have been born in the USA, and how stupid they are to spend their time trying to destroy it.

  4. It’s a program championed by Jeb Bush and his group. This group makes money when Common Core books are published and purchased by all the boards of education throughout the country. This is an idiotic program. 1 + 1 = 2 You have to teach this with all types of tools and all types of drawings instead of just learning the basics of addition, subtraction, multiplication, division.

  5. It’s a program meant to confuse and mislead these malleable young minds so that they can’t even think for themselves, but wait to be programmed as their schooling goes to higher levels. I recall hearing something many, many years ago that there was no place in politics for liberals, but rather, they could safely reside in the realm of academia. Face/palm. They are busy churning out selfish, whiny, little socialists dependent on the government for their every need. We have to take back the schools before we can fix this country.

    • Right on the mark, A_patriot……Young skulls full of mush being programmed to be little clueless robots, dependent upon iphones and calculators to do their math and literary skills…..

      • They need to learn the same respect for authority and love of God and Country which was taught to The Greatest Generation; instead they get the opposite– me first, atheism, lies, Christ-hating, Israel-hating, racist white-hating.

  6. When you start placing blame, you have to remember that Republicans like Jeb Bush embraced it in Florida and the ranking members in the House and the Senate let this happen. Every piece of legislation requires funding. Congress holds the purse strings. Anything that happens in congress therefore, is sanctioned by our illustrious leaders in government whom we sent there. Maybe we are the problem for being ignorant about our choices. But we make them any way.

    • That’s the way its supposed to happen, however our illustrious leader president will just pass an executive order if he doesn’t get his way, so it makes no difference. Besides, he obviously has a lot of dirt on the republicans in congress, otherwise they wouldn’t cower in fear everytime he wants something.

      • Since they are now using all the alphabet governmental organizations to spy on Americans you’re right, they have dirt on everyone of them. That’s why how ever bad Trump might be, he would still be a breath of fresh air. He may not be able to do it all but he can start cleaning house.

  7. Common Core is just another instrument, as is amnesty for illegals, gun control, allowing Muslims into our country by the hundreds of thousands are just a few examples in tearing away at the very fabric of the Constitution of the United States, the very danger that our framers sought to avoid. The leftists/liberals will tear away one thread after another until it is threadbare and falls apart IF we allow them to do so. WAKE UP & REALIZE WHAT IS HAPPENING TO OUR COUNTRY …… it is happening one Executive Order after another.

    • Oh like little georgies 38 executive orders or Jimmy Carters 81, Nixon’s 67, hell even Bedtime for Bonzo had more executive orders than President Obama who is at 36. It must be sad to be you living in such the fearful world of your mind.

      • Maybe so, but NONE of those other pukes issued UNCONSTITUTIONAL EO’s DELIBERATELY!!!! NONE of those other pukes were trying to tear down the USA and destroy our freedom, except maybe Jimmy C.

        • You are way off base on these comments, tabloid words repeated without research. The takeover began in
          ’63 with the far right fascist coup of our original government, the past 53 years of history confirms it.

          • Nothing real to convey, so you drag up some fictional story from inside your tiny little delusional mind and foist it on us. I suppose the time frame you suggest implies that Conservatives had JFK assassinated??? Pathetic Clown.

          • Yes that’s been a well known fact since about 1965. It wasn’t just your normal run of the mill conservatives but the far right fascist faction such as Allen Dulles and the like. If you don’t understand who and why then you can’t understand where we are and how we got to this mess we see out our windows. I can type for you pages of research and offer you mountains of evidence collected over the past 45 years but it would be easier to do your own research. Start with Mark Lane’s “Rush To Judgement” (years on the best seller’s list)or just use your search engine to look into “the assassination of Sen. Paul Wellstone ” and see what you get. We were a country headed for peace with a President who was speaking of a world without armies, who was pulling troops out of Vietnam. Three days after his murder and the coup our policies did a 360 and we have been at war ever since, except during the Carter years. Fascism-a government whose economy is based on going to war. Eisenhower warned about this faction when he was leaving office, “military industrial complex’ CIA/ Military and Kennedy was listening and working to break up that out of control group. He fired the CIA Chief Dulles who ended up running the Warren Commission. Harry Truman, 30 days after the coup said the ‘The CIA must be returned to its original purpose as it is it poses a threat to the very culture and society in which we live”. GHWB ascended to the CIA chief position and then was danced into the White House to reign for 12 years. I could go on but won’t I thought that everyone knew these things, that everyone has researched this part of our history. Thank you ABO, you have awakened me to what the problem is, not understanding what happened that day in Dallas would leave one in the dark. We have been building on a lie since then, lies and a cover up which they still attempt to keep in place, I guess I didn’t realize that some don’t know. If I have a knowledge of anything on this planet it is this subject this is my area of voluminous research since I was 12. I was 8 when the masquerade was displayed on that little black and white TV. It was obvious then and is quickly obvious now with a little study. There are 2600+ volumes of writings on this coup, 6 million pages in the Nationl Achieves, but you have to tip toe like your in a land mine field. Much disinformation from the CIA posing as researchers or out and out debunkers as their manual describes. The disinformation will lead you into places that you don’t need to go or lead to some crazy conclusion. The early writers such as Penn Jones Jr, Mark Lane who was the lawyer in a case against E. Howard Hunt in ’84 NY Circuit Court of Appeals where the jury unanimously charged Hunt as “complicit in conspiracy to assassinate President John F. Kennedy”. They also called for the Justice Dept. to open the case which of course it never did, our Justice system never had anything to do with the whole matter, strange don’t you think? Also Harold Weisberg, FBI/CIA and his ‘Whitewash” books, Col. Fletcher Prouty and Popkin. These early writers/researchers were on the mark . There were 4 presidents in Dallas that day …Nixon, Bush, JFK and LBJ. Don’t take my word for it, I know you won’t because of your hate toward me but there is much to learn and I am very sincere when I tell you that we are where we are because of November 22-25,1963.

          • I offered you many points of research if you don’t want to look its ok you have obviously been in the dark on this subject for a very long time. From my correspondence with you I understand that truth is not something you enjoy nor appreciate. The research pints that I offer are not from tabloids but from patriots attempting to uncover the truth which is exactly what they did. Stalwart members of our community, hell just the 26 volumes of the Warren commission Report, which I assume you have not read, discredits itself. To answer you more fully the information printed from J E Hoover involving Mr. Bush with the coup was discovered by Joseph McBride back during the House Select Committee on Assassination hearings and of course was shoved under a rock, however you can find a copy of that document in many places. McBride has compiled his 27 years of research in a book called “Into the Nightmare” 2013 you can find it on Amazon only. You can also find interviews and discussion with him on YouTube along with thousands of others who are connected to the events and the cover up as well since I am assuming that you do not enjoy reading or digging or tripping to the National Achieves yourself.

          • Many points of research??? Oh really. They appeared to be just rants from your pathetic little fantasy world as they are not in any way, shape or form footnoted. Only one claiming them as “researched points is a liberal troll called h m rowland.

          • Ok Whatever brother, if you can’t do it its ok. Like I said I can sit here and type for days on that subject but obviously it would be wasted on you which is why I didn’t go deeper and this is not the place for pages and pages and pages. If you have the ability to research then I gave you plenty of starting points, if that’s not enough then oh well. You don’t want to know or face the truth about why we are where we are as a government and that’s ok too, just blah blah whatever Fox Friends tell you and be happy. Ignorance is as they say ….bliss. Peace to you and yours

          • You didn’t go deeper because you have yet to say anything intelligent and you’ve just now begun to realize that everyone who’s following your extended rant sees it.

          • Wow! I would never have guessed that Lee Harvey Oswald, Jack Ruby, David Ferrie, et al. were right wingers!!

          • Lee Oswald was not involved other than his service as a patsy and there is no evidence to involve him, however he was CIA and an FBI informant. Jack Ruby, FBI informant who was also on the staff of Richard Nixon in the 40’s. He was Nixon’s aid to the McCarthy Hearings. David Ferrie was CIA. All of those involved in the coup were from a far right wing faction of the CIA.

        • Perhaps you could simply trim that unsightly hair from your ears, I think its grown into your brain. I presented you with real numbers I guess you didn’t like them.

      • You ever heard of memoranda? Policy and/or procedural changes made, just like Executive Orders, but are called memoranda. I can tell you haven’t heard of them, because of your pathetic numbers. If you were to take into account the use of memoranda, much more used by Obummer than almost all presidents in the modern era together, then you are just another low-info, blathering idiot Liberal. Is there any other? idk…

        Check out what USAToday says about this:
        http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/politics/2014/12/16/obama-presidential-memoranda-executive-orders/20191805/

        It’s really not the number that is as important as the obvious misuse of them. Where the Constitution forbids, Obummer writes new law as EO or memoranda. The purpose was to adjust a processes that were deliniating from the true purpose of a law. This socialist thinks he’s king… or relishes the day that he could act as the sub-Saharan African dictators that he admires. Rowland, the Demonrats are full of smoke and mirrors, and you obviously have been Gruber’d again.

        • You childish people and your 2nd grade name calling(obummer)is pathetic and calls for you to not be taken seriously as an adult Wacky Jackie. It is also a treasonous act, America IS great I’m not sure why you want to talk her down all the time. Presidential orders from Obama have been at least useful and needed such as the recent ending of coal starts on public lands….thank you Mr. President. Whacky, the Fascists(far right extremists) are full of smoke and mirrors, and you obviously have been Bushed again. It will be noted that you are in favor of war and human slaughter, bigotry and ignorance, abusing the earth and other wise are from here on out placed on the ‘Tabloid Republican’ list. As far as your socialist slur goes there are 27% Tea Dummies(fascists) and 30% socialists. Yes, I understand memorandum. By the way you need to get rid of that awful stuff hanging on your walls and invest in some real art its no wonder that your so irritable.

          • You’re the childish idiot doing the name calling and throwing around the insults. Then once you get it going you turn it around, blaming others.That’s the way you pathetic clowns work. Obama Screws up the economy but it’s all Bush’s fault Never take any responsibility for anything. Just blame someone else. Pathetic.

          • Screw up the economy? Obama kept us from a depression and we are above the employment rate (full employment) that we had before the ’08 fall. The only thing that I have found to pound Obama about is his hawkish attitude and his lack of bringing home every troop and abolishing the military and the CIA who set policy in this country….guess I just answered my own misgivings, he has done as he has been instructed as every other president since ’63. If he actually had power, or the nest elected, it would be in our best interest to spend the military budget on creating peace rather than wasting it on war. Peace isn’t a money maker however so the dollar over deaths will continue to be our direction.

          • You really are pathetic. You just buy the obfuscations put out by this administration and accept it as absolute truth. It has been proved over and over that they’ve been spinning the numbers to make them look good for 7 years now, but ole hmr just buys it all, hook, line and sinker. Pathetic.

          • About half of the American workers are gainfully employed, the other half are getting some form of food stamps. I personally know several qualified people who would love to have a job but can’t find one.
            Sure, Obama got us out of a recession! RIGHT!!

      • Now it’s executive orders. Stay on the subject at hand or go find somewhere else to annoy people who are trying to carry on a normal discussion without some sick, twisted liberal butting in, trying to disrupt it. Oh and I see you’ve started with the name calling and insults already. Time for you to take your toys and run home. That’ll show us.

        • Whacky Jackie started the Executive order discussion I think it would be best if you read what I respond to before you blah blah me. Even better would be to just brush past any post that I make and go on with your conversation. Becoming involved in my ‘butting in’is your choice.

        • Read the comment to which that was a response. Whacky Jackie changed the topic and you obviously are up in my business rather than minding your own. Remember mommy teaching you not to tattle and to mind your own business? It still applies. That said, education is the only way out for us, we have few thinkers and many mouthers passing on the words of talking heads because 27% of citizens can’t read over a 5th grade level. Same percentage of Tea baggers interestingly enough. We need to focus on literacy and as much arts training as possible. As far as text books go we have Texas to thank for the propaganda contained therein as they use the most text and so decide the content. Another astonishing fact is that history is being phased out of schools which as you know is a massive danger in suppressing the real truth not that history texts have real history but it is enough to cause literates to investigate the conspiracies of the ancients and forward. Happy now?

          • She is only “wacky Jackie” in your AHOLE opinion. Most of us, thinking independently, realize that the puppet master is a Muslim that wants to divide and destroy America. You are either a shill or totally nuts…

          • And you are wrong, mouthing the radio and TV talking heads of the manipulated right makes you a ‘Tabloid republican’ as you are referred to in normal society. Do you understand how insane your words make you sound? The heads you follow are paid to lead you into despair and whackidoodleness.

          • Your use of the term, “tea baggers” identifies you to all of us as a liberal pin head!
            Your ideas are bankrupt.

          • The very concepts on which our nation was founded are all old.
            I will accept your antiquated comment as a compliment.

        • PLENTY– power control from a deceptive central power and forcing it in a corrupt anti-democratic, ie anti-Constitutional way and then forcing it on an already tax-burdened working and middle class .

        • Ever heard of a moron using barbaric tactics in a modern world? Weapons and violence are never the answer not even when you are threatening the life of a troll. I have just referred your information and threat to my local police(they love to kill people, they are as barbaric as you). I can’t believe that anyone would make light of this needless tragedy…..a 4 year old with his brains on grandpa’s wall.

          • Where is your outrage over thugs breaking into and killing families and women being raped because they have no means of protecting themselves?
            Where is your outrage against big pharma for their prescription drugs that drive people to suicide and mass killings?
            Where is your outrage against laws that disarmed the French people, leaving them to be shot like fish in a barrel?
            Where is your outrage about disarmed Cubans being crushed by Fidel?
            I could go on, but I think even you should get the point.

          • First of all you don’t know if I’m outraged over those issues or not. I wonder if you are outraged about red necks destroying sacred Native grounds and artifacts? Are you outraged that more hasn’t been done faster concerning continuing life on this planet by attacking global warming like other civilized countries? Are you outraged by innocent people being gunned down by police in the streets? Are you outraged about the way the police speak to citizens and their bully tactics and their militarization? Are you outraged that some baker would refuse to do what his sign says because of who someone chooses to love and marry? Outraged about the U.S. acting in fascist fashion firing guns and bombs instead of choosing dialogue of peace? Do you have outrage about those who speak treasonous words about our President? ..about America which IS great? Do you hold rage over San Bernardino and 9/11 and hundreds of other deadly actions of the CIA used to control your mind? Are you outraged over the Patriot Act? Are you in the streets in outrage over the continuing dumbing down of America and the lack of education ? Here’s the biggest one, are you in outrage over football being allowed when you yourself know that, “those who touch the skin of a pig are unclean”? Are you absolutely insane over the fact that we murder animals for food? How barbaric! I’m sure that you are outraged over the box of clowns that are running on the right for the presidency of this country, sad indeed a disgrace that pushes us closer to a one party system. Are you outraged at right wing radio and TV personalities actively work to stir up hate instead of intelligence and understanding? Are you outraged that ALL major media lie to us and spread propaganda laid out by those who want your mind in a pickle jar? I am outraged that our military budget isn’t used to create peace. …how about you? I wonder if you are outraged about non violent offenders incarcerated on marijuana charges, homelessness, hunger, and those running around crying “the sky is falling the sky is falling and rushing to buy guns to shoot at it? Are you outraged that some turn left into the right hand lane. don’t put their napkin on their lap when they eat, can’t produce art of any kind, who don’t consider things in a spiritual way? Outraged over the hearts of men who have a cowboy mentality of superiority when pink skin is not the only color in which human beings are created? Outraged over comb overs on billionaires who refuse to rent to people because of skin color? Outraged that baseball started using video to make calls instead of umpires? I am, that the National league is considering the designated hitter…….outrageous!!

      • Yes, of course. Just wonder why the grandparents would not have their gun in a home safe or hidden some place a youngster could not find it. Tragic! However, what does this have to do with Common Core?

        • Your right, why in the hell didn’t the natives on this continent blow the heads off my ancestors and yours and protect their homeland? Puritan terrorists claiming superiority overrunning this country and its rightful peoples.

      • I have a hard time believing that you are not a troll bent on incendiary rhetoric, but I’ll give you the benefit of the doubt. Do you really believe that Islam is compatible with any other worldview? If you haven’t thought about it, then find a Quran and read Surah 9:5. It’s called the verse of the sword. But there are many, many verses calling for violence and fear mongering (terrorism), against those that don’t believe in Islam.

        Islam is as compatible with America and the rest of the world as oil and water. You can’t be both… Mooslim and centrist.

        A couple quotes for thought:
        “Islam, just like the Roman God Janus, has two faces”. — Abul Kasem

        “The militant Muslim is the person cutting the head of the infidel while the moderate Muslim holds the victims feet”. — Dr. M. Sabieski

        “In a country when Muslims are a minority, they demand more and more privileges and rights for minorities from the host country. When their number grows by birth or immigration, they want to impose Sharia rule. When they become the majority, they start bringing death and destruction to the host nation and start ethnic cleansing. This is the worst type of disloyalty and hypocrisy.

        Is not this the same what Muhammad did to the early Meccans? When he was weak, he brought down verses, which were non-violent. He even uttered some verses, which praised the pagan gods (i.e. the satanic verses) to make the Meccans happy. But when he became powerful, his darker side began to emerge and the Qur’anic verses started losing their beauty. Once he conquered Mecca, he showed his true color to everyone – either convert or die by the sword.” Islam-Watch.org

        • You have certainly done your research and I admire that it is so few and far between here on this site…kudos. I understand that the culture is 700 years behind the rest of the world but it was our goal to wake them up and invade to get McDonald’s on every corner in the middle east but the assholes who stole this continent were little better than terrorists and unfortunately their offspring have not grown up nor do they fit into this culture to this day. You can put a suit on a Bush but its still an self serving bully a throw back to the dark ages. Just a note on your “paganism” ….paganism is far different than Satanism and earth religions are gentle and the Christian holy days (holidays) were, in there beginnings, pagan festivals and holy days.

      • Islam is a CULT, not a religion. The sooner everyone figures this out, the sooner it can lose 1A protection and be treated as other wackos (Like the Waco Branch Davidians, for example – wish Islamists would drink the Kool-Aid…).

        “Vetted” Refugees? Don’t make me laugh. http://conservativetribune.com/12-refugees-vetted-but-obama/

        Please visit https://petitions.whitehouse.gov/petition/immediately-cease-relocating-syrian-refugees-united-states-due-terrorist-and-isis-ability-infiltrate-us

        If a refugee is a child or a woman, and is a CHRISTIAN (aren’t they the ones that need help most??), I consider them welcome. Muslim? NO. Muslim male of fighting age? HELL NO. Muslim already in the US? Forswear jihad and Shariah or LEAVE.

        By the way, this isn’t an “anti-them” attitude. It’s a “pro-us” attitude. Isn’t that the primary job of the federal government? Protect the USA. Not others.

        A piece of data that these “refugees” should know. Well, two, really. 1 – a truly legitimate refugee, one who does not seek to harm anyone, has nothing to fear from people like us. 2 – those that would do us harm will be met with bullets that have been soaked in pig fat; they won’t be going to Paradise…

        Now for the “bad them” (and “incredibly bad OBAMA”) part:

        The Shoe Bomber, Beltway Snipers, Fort Hood Shooter & underwear Bomber were Muslims
        The USS Cole Bombers, Madrid Train Bombers, & Bafi Nightclub Bombers were Muslims
        The London Subway Bombers, Moscow Theatre Attackers, & Boston Marathon Bombers were Muslims
        The Pan-Am flight #93 Bombers & Air France Entebbe Hijackers were Muslims
        The Iranian Embassy Invaders, Beirut US Embassy bombers & Libyan US Embassy Attacker were Muslims
        The Buenos Aires Suicide Bombers & Israeli Olympic Team Attackers were Muslims
        The Kenyan US Embassy, Saudi Khobar Towers, & Beirut Marine Barracks bombers were Muslims
        The Besian Russian School Attackers & first World Trade Center Bombers were Muslims
        The Bombay & Mumbai India Attackers were Muslims
        The Achille Lauro Cruise Ship & September 11th 2001 Airline Hijackers were Muslims

        Compatibility:
        Buddhists living with Hindus, Sikhs, Shintos = No Problem
        Hindus living with Christians, Jews, Baha’is = No Problem
        Christians living with Shintos, Jews = No Problem
        Shintos living with Confucians, Atheists = No Problem
        Confucians living with Baha’is, Hindus = No Problem
        Baha’is living with Jews, Christians = No Problem
        Jews living with Atheists, Buddhists = No Problem
        Atheists living with Buddhists, Confucians = No Problem
        Sikhs living with Hindus = No Problem
        Muslims living with any of the above = Problem
        MUSLIMS LIVING WITH MUSLIMS = BIG PROBLEM

        ********** Which Explains *****************
        They’re not happy in Gaza, Egypt, Libya, Morocco, Iran, Iraq, Yemen, Afghanistan
        They’re not happy in Pakistan, Syria, Lebanon, Nigeria, Kenya, Sudan

        ******** So, where are they happy? **********
        They’re happy in Australia, England, Belgium, France, Italy, Germany, Sweden
        They’re happy in the USA, Canada, India

        They’re happy in nearly any country that is not Islamic! And who do they blame? Not Islam… Not their leadership… Not themselves… THEY BLAME THE COUNTRIES THEY ARE HAPPY IN! They want to change the countries they’re happy in to be like the countries they came from where they were unhappy and finally turn them into more Third World shitholes…

        7) Non-Muslims cannot be friends with Muslims. (Koran.5;51).
        8) Non-Muslims are sworn enemies of Muslims and Islam. (Koran.4;101).
        9) Non-Muslims can be raped as sex slaves. (Koran.4;3 & 24/5;89/23;5/33;50/58;3/70;30).
        10) Non-Muslims are the vilest of creatures deserving no mercy. (Koran.98;6).
        11) Muslims must terrorize non-Muslims. (Koran.8;12 &59-60/ Bukhari.4;52;220).
        12) Muslims must strike terror into non-Muslims hearts. (Koran.8;60).
        13) Muslims must lie to non-Muslims to strengthen and spread Islam. (Koran.3;28?16;106).
        14) Muslims are allowed to behead non-Muslims (Koran.47;4).
        15) Muslims are guaranteed to go to heaven (Paradise) if they kill non-Muslims. (Koran.9;111).
        16) Marrying and divorcing pre-pubescent children is OK. (Koran.65;4).
        17) Wife beating is OK. (Koran.4;34).
        18) Raping wives is OK. (Koran.2;223).
        19) Proving rape requires four male Muslim witnesses. (Koran.24;13).
        20) Muslims are allowed to crucify and amputate non-Muslims. Koran.8;12/47;4).

        WAKE UP, AMERICA, read this article!

        Boko Haram, Al-qaida, Fascism, Bolsheviks, and Political Satanism (Liberalism) all love unarmed Christians (make the connection?).

          • You are really into clowns aren’t you ? You speak of them all the time I bet you are in heaven during the Republican debate Circus. They should take that show on the road it is very funny! They sure provide a lot of laughs for the public at large. Did you See Colbert and his 7 minutes of dismantling Palin, “Trump and Gump” no wait that was Bill Maher. Here is Saturday Night Live’s use of the clowns…. and here is Colbert for you 5 million views and 20 million laughs….

          • Time for you to take the tents down, clean the cages and pack it in. Would you prefer that I refer to you as “idiot”? Or perhaps “moron”? You have certainly earned either of them with your pathetic drivel on these threads. But “clown” just seems particularly appropriate in your case.

          • Sounds good thanks for your opinion. It is very strange to me that you folks think that there is a conspiracy afoot and there is. When I attempt to say hey your right and here is some proof or here is where it started then I’m a nut. Obviously the truth is not what you want to hear unless it fits some mold. Your conspiracy and mine are the same yet mine is nutty and yours is somehow real. I guess it comes to this your insecurities kick in when I shed light on your evil heroes. Peace.

          • The problem, h m r is your incredibly twisted idea of the term “truth”. you obviously believe that the truth is unarguably whatever YOU say it is. Oh and by the way, just in case you haven’t noticed your explanation of all this is incredibly convoluted and nonsensical. When I first read one of your posts, on a different site, many months prior, you seemed to be intelligent and even though we disagreed on most points I was able to carry on a normal, reasoned conversation with you. Since then you have seemingly decided that it is preferable to simply call others childish derogatory names and interrupt and divert the conversation with utterly nonsensical opinions aimed at keeping others from discussing the subject at hand. In doing so you have put yourself in the company of lunatics like “Reality Check” who post nothing but foul rants and utterly disjointed illiterate garbage intended to disrupt the conversation. Sound familiar? While I wouldn’t put you in the same class of obstructionist lunatics like RC, you seem to be headed in that very direction. Please make an attempt to turn your presence hear back to viable, reasonable argument and refrain from the type of disgusting tantrum based behavior of RC and others like him. Just sayin’.

          • Well ABO I appreciate that analysis, sincerely. I make an effort to not name call as it is not my intent to revert to childish commentary. I do tag some government agents with names but not the people I am talking to. Whacky Jackie is more of a term of endearment as we have played and disagreed for a long time now. I have never called you a name other than the one you present. We all have our weak moments when the high road is just too much to tow. again I just try to share in discussion with those who are able. When I am attacked by the obvious mentally deficit I do go snide, but even the weak are not on my list for name calling. I had to hold back and delete with a guy here yesterday who calls me every name he thinks might hurt me but I consider the source and delete my slings and arrows. You my friend seem to always be on the attack with me but at least you do it with intelligence, you do call me names though and I let you vent without calling them in return.
            The truth that I offer you about the coup is all well known, it is my passion and what I do day in and day out. I can’t get away form it ABO it follows me and haunts me. I am certainly not the only one who understands that this one act changed the world and the direction of our country,(and my entire life) our government and is why we are what we are now. Its hard truth to look at and the official story which is propaganda insulates many and becomes a safe spot. James W. Douglas writes in “JFK The Unspoken”(which I highly recommend to you, its based on his time with Thomas Merton) that “As recent polls indicate, three out of four Americans believe Kennedy was killed by a conspiracy. The evidence has long pointed toward our own government. Yet with recurrent defenses of the Warren Commission, conjectures of Mob plots, and attacks on Kennedy’s character we in this media drenched society drink the waters of uncertainty. We believe we cannot know…a truth whose basic evidence has been present since the work of the Warren Commission’s earliest critics. Could there be a deeper reason for our reluctance to know the truth? Is our wariness of the truth of JFK’s assassination rooted in our fear of truth’s consequences, to him and to us? For President Kennedy, a deepening commitment to dialogue with our enemies(rather than nuclear holocaust ’62 and after) proved fatal. (for him) If we are unwilling as citizens to deal with that critical precedent, what twenty first century president will have the courage on our behalf to resist the powers that be and choose dialogue instead of war in response to our current enemies?” As I have said before, we have known the truth since ’65 but until we look at that truth and face it we will continue to be lead by those who make money going to war, first strike, invade others space, fire instead of talk, speak of war and violence instead of peace of a society which values life rather than the death of perceived enemies. Terrorism is just a replacement for Communism, we must have an enemy to bolster the economy and keep the people in line, many are duped but not you and I. I mean, nor meant you any harm. Peace, we have forgotten about it by design of those who actually set policy and manufacture enemies. What man or woman, as president, is going to fight for or act in peace against this cabal if it means they lose their lives?

          • Thank you for the thoughtful response h m r. I do appreciate it and I apologize for the occasional name calling. No excuse but it’s usually after I’ve had a run in with the lunatic that calls himself “Reality Check” who’s post consist of nothing but foul language and name calling. Always manages to get me riled even though I know better and it sets the tone. I much prefer a reasonable, thoughtful discussion with someone who is more apt to consider all sides of an issue and present a carefully considered conclusion. Again, thanks very much for your thoughtful response.

          • Truth be known I think that we all vent our anger and upset online. Its almost as though I provide something on this site, something healing for folks who need to cut loose and scream. I need to scream sometimes, my goal is not to just agitate but, like you, to challenge status quo thinking and cause new thoughts. Of course as I have told you sometimes I just poke the dog with a stick! If I could learn to pass by those comments that call me to pick up the stick it would be a better choice for all concerned I guess, mostly I am kind and gentle in this world, and I allow myself to get out of line, off the high road when I read some of what I find here. I don’t think that I have encountered ‘reality check’ I don’t always look at names just comments, this isn’t a personal thing for me in either reply or post. We all could probably benefit by remembering that we are talking to human beings with feelings and similar strife, that’s what I learned from your previous reply. What I find interesting is that the left and right are saying the exact same things about each other and we are surely in this thing together, the common ground is there however the talking heads are used to stir our inner fires with labels and classifications and games played with words,(“that depends on what the meaning of ”is” is.”). Many would pooh pooh mind control as the idea of a man in a tin foil hat but it is in play daily in more ways than we can comprehend. I believe that each time we turn on each other we move closer to a fuller form of martial law. If we all got along it would certainly put a crimp in the plans of some controlling entity! I appreciate your kinder words, you don’t know it but your very likely my best friend as I am house bound these days, I talk with you more than anyone else.
            I do seriously recommend that you read “JFK the Unspeakable, why he died and why it matters”. This is not a conspiracy whack a doo kind of book but is a work of historical chronology and 30 years of on the hoof research by a very talented and deeply spiritual writer. Very compelling and is written in a historic perspective with full documentation which I know you will appreciate. I am only 1/3 of the way(have seen interviews and read critique and excerpts previously) through this book I have wanted to add it to my collection for a long while but just couldn’t let go of the cash. I am so impressed, maybe because he writes what I have thought or said myself but gives me, even after all these years of research, a new prospective it helps me to see that I have blamed an entire group of people all these years when it was actually a small group of rogues serving self and leaving us all standing in the dark, building on lies of the powerful.. The acts of the ’60’s were a warning shot and then was the time to choke the life from that kind of thinking and control over our people. I would send you this book myself but I imagine you would prefer to not post your address! LOL If you would decide to give it a read it can be found on eBay and of course Amazon in used or new format. Sorry to go on about it but I just feel it is a very important work about how we got to here, and my narcissism wants you to understand what I have been attempting to share with you. If its not for you that’s cool I would understand. JFK/MX/RFK/MLK Peace to you …..

          • I challenge you to post any copy and paste of any reputable publication backing your claim up, ie, “all religions are cults by definition”.
            You claim to have so much knowledge! Quote us the golden text of the Bible. No fair googling it!

          • Golden text? Never heard that before no professor ever used that in Seminary. Do you mean the golden rule, do unto others as you would have them do unto you? If you need or want a definition of “cult” just open your dictionary, or just google the word. Do your own research big guy.

          • I didn’t think you would know what the golden text of the Bible is.
            Seminarians don’t know?
            Any 12 year old Sunday School student knows the answer.
            You shouldn’t comment on Christianity and expose your vast ignorance on the subject. Ignorance can be cured with information.
            There is hope for you unless you are an ideologue.

          • Really ? Let’s discuss the ‘Q’ factor. Jesus was an ideologue, that would put me in fine company.

          • Oh great historian!
            There was savagery on both sides, sometimes aided by foreign powers.
            You seem to carry a load of ancestral (white?) guilt. Why is that?

    • When will they wake up and see the man behind the curtain pulling the strings only because they are so ignorant about their own rights that are clearly being jacked around because they who have studied the Constitution and they rely on you not knowing your rights and have never read or studied the document but you can believe they have.

    • I heard one time that back in the 1840’s, that the Mormon Prophet, Joseph Smith prophesied, “THAT THIS COUNTRY WOULD BE DESTROYED FROM WITHIN AND THE CONSTITUTION WOUD HANG BY A THREAD.”
      That is exactly what is happening right now with this muslim communist a$$hole that is supposed to be the president of the UNITED STATES.

      • Nikita Khruschev said that in 1962– he knew what the “civil” “rights” , “liberties” LIARS along with the ACLU were already “up to” by the late 1950’s.

  8. You have to remember, Jeb Bush is supposed to be the darling Rino, along with all his family. Those people think their ideas and word is as important as the Bible. For one, Geo W bush ran the fuel prices as far up as they could go, along with ding-a-ing dick cheney. I just do not miss the Bushes, I cannot take their Owning the Conservative Republican idea as if it belongs only to them.

  9. Around here we refer to it as Commie Core and for obvious reasons. We refer to Obama care as CommieCare also. Both of them are nothing more than unmitigated Communism at heart.

  10. What was wrong with the way they were doing it before? It led to a lot of smart people that can think for themselves. Ohhhhh! I get it. They want sheeple…..

  11. Love what James O’Keefe is doing. If you have any extra money, {if the liberals haven’t stolen it from you} consider making a donation to project Veritas.

  12. Jackie is right! That is what happens when the Federal Government does not live under the Constitutional laws/rules. They are not given any authority in the fields of Education, Healthcare, Climate, Energy, Agriculture, Medicine to name a few. Yet the rule the roost in these areas to the destruction of Freedom.

  13. Certainly not surprised. Lets face it, just looking at the math problems tells anyone that who made up the adding and subtraction problems did not know what they are doing or maybe they do, to make kids hate math and not go into math which is needed for any job you get in one way or another. And the literature and history was replaced with writings on Islam and sneaking into the lives of the parents of the kids. Hmmmm. Nothing like learning how to control the parents while you are teaching the kids how to hate school and that school is not needed for the kids futures so the kids get so frustrated they blank out in class with the parents not getting what is going on. Oh wait, that is already going on in big city schools in the bad neighborhoods. Common Core apparently is met for the suburb kids who were learning and going on to jobs and college. Our suburb school started implementing it and parents were constantly complaining about the curriculum to the point the school did have or should I say listened to the parents and made the needed changes. Guess you do not get what you pay for anymore.

  14. Common Core = Communist Core!!!

    Chase everyone that supports Common Core out of town on a rail! Don’t forget the TAR & FEATHERS!!!!

  15. Money and brain washing. I think of the Hitler youth movement in WWII Germany, Islamic child suicide bombers, etc. and see how easy it is to warp the minds of children, often with extreme and terrifying results. It’s a subtle, long term project. Remember Hillery, stating when Billery was Pres., that it “takes a village” to raise our children? What she meant was that she believes our kids belong to the state first, parents second. More than ever, parents MUST be pro-active in their kids education and fight this evil agenda.

  16. I certainly believe this is true…follow the money. Few of the new generation can solve a problem without a calculator. Common Core needs to be in the garbage where it belongs.

  17. Its always been about money ! But what money? Old money, New money ,a and your tax money ! Old money rich Invest in these Book Corporation to Subvert our young into subservience to those Rich that Get Tried and True Curriculum’s that work, while our Public school are Experimented on by every Idiot Psychologist new wim that comes along ! Old money Rich do this in every country But it is obviously ramped in the United States ! Our Diversity In race should make us superior in education, Instead we are becoming Dead Last in the world . The Dumbing down of USA is real and has bad Consequences for the Poor !
    Only this time I will Disagree with this article ! So much of real US history is deleted in Common Core that its Obvious Communist Indoctrination is apparent ! Consider this Common Core is such a bad Curriculum that Russian President Vladimir Putin will not allow it in his country. Common Core is a United Nations Indoctrination of False Global Warming a ploy of Carbon Taxation without representation that Smacks in the Face of islam Demitra ! Illuminati Rich Old Money deem it necessary to tax the entire world for a unproven problem that simply doesn’t exist ! So Home school your Children If you love them. Were obviously going to need their leadership in the future as Public Education gets incredibly worse ! Common Core is a Trojan Horse of UN Agenda 21 to indoctrinate for Takeover by force All of our US Natural resources ! Its not just oil they want it all !

  18. Americanism against Socialism Common core Socialism could not Invent the wheel !

    Exceptionalism does not come with Socialism never has and never will threw out History of History.
    Exceptionalism comes from our Bill of rights The First 10 Amendments And our Constitution, the Greatest Scientific discoveries of all !
    With this Bill of Rights We went from Kitty hawk to the Moon in one short Generation !
    With This Bill of Rights We led Captivity captive in two world wars , Fulfilling God’s desire for freedom on earth !
    With that Bill of Rights that surpassed the Magna Carta in numeration of necessary human rights for prosperity We gave the scientist of the world a place to practice their God given right to invent the Industrial Revolution and give the world Technology unsurpassed by any one nation on earth since the beginning of time !

    Common Core Smacks up against our US Exceptionalism to destroy it ! Kick these people out of our schools NOW !

    With Socialism the wheel wouldn’t have been invented !!

  19. If you just take a minute to read about the UN “Agenda 21” you’ll get the message. If you look at Common Core material, you will see it is copyright material with HQ in INDIA. My adopted son needed help with a math question and when i asked him to bring me his text book he said “we don’t have one. the teacher gives us a page like this to work” — I took the photocopied page on on the bottom was the CC copyright!! I wrote to the school and asked to speak to the principal. He was upset that they had no choice because the State had accepted Federal Funds and with it came the forced math/english Common Core crap. I was annoyed that he had made no notification to the parents of the change. We simply have to start pushing back against the apathy built status quo and get things returned to the search for excellence instead of the rush to mediocrity.

  20. Of course it is all about money– another way to steal from hard-working American tax payer– it’s your federal taxes at work and guaranteed the Dept of Ed in DC is behind all this and I wouldn’t be surprised if obama’s DOE picks get a cut of that money. Back in 1966 when LBJ passed all the “entitlements” to buy the ghetto vote, Federal Tax dollars were handed down by the hundreds of millions to every urban School District for the FREE BREAKFAST AND LUNCH PROGRAMS that we still are paying for with our federal taxes today– only it’s even more widespread today– thanks to Devilcraps . When all the thousands of School Boards sent out for bids locally, the amount of graft and lies, etc to win a contract was well known and nepotism and payoffs reigned supreme. Likely still goes on — and similar with textbook contracts– but I don’t think they’re quite as lucrative as the food service contracts.

  21. Looks like some people need to go missing! Put one black man in the big house and the country has gone to he$$, but so has Chicago!

  22. This started 100-150 years ago. They are ever so slowly changing what they teach our children Back at around 1900-1920’s they gave each child a test to graduate from the 8th grade. How many have heard some one say about some one that had made it big in the world that that person only had a 3rd grade education. They knew more that most kids are learning now days. I would bet that a large amount of people in this country today could not pass this graduation test. The days when you were taught the three R’s. Look up the test and see for your self. DARE YOU TO.

  23. The ONLY reason schools were invented in the first place was to teach people to read so they could read the Holy Bible!

  24. My grandson is in a catholic school and they are teaching common core .I help him with his homework sometimes and the math part of this is very confusing for the kids. Instead of teaching the easiest way to get the right answer they’ve infused all these extra steps that aren’t really necessary. I show my grandson the easiest way to get the right answer.
