Common Core Math Homework: 56 Seconds To Solve 9+6

So it’s about as efficient as the federal government.
“When you and I were in school, we used to just memorize 9 plus 6 equals 15. Not anymore. With the Common Core, students need to understand why that’s the case.”
This is the introduction to the first of six “Homework Helper” segments Buffalo, N.Y., NBC affiliate WGRZ is broadcasting this week in honor of back-to-school week. The series is meant to be a helpful tool for parents confused by their children’s Common Core homework this year.
Each morning, a local math teacher takes one simple homework question, and spends a few minutes explaining the methodology required to solve it. Each lesson takes a little over one minute for the teacher to explain.
But here’s the irony: the one-minute lessons are explaining long processes for simple problems like 9 plus 6 — math that took children a few seconds to solve before Common Core standards.
Thank You Daily Signal and Zip.

Baffle them with Bullshit. 

Just another extension of the State Marketing itself and its Cronies.

Counselors, Mental Health Professionals, and other assorted Mooching Humanist Bureaucrats galore, . . . to help these kids deal with their Govt. inflicted Frustrations.
