Sometimes it just paralyzes the mind, to think that our government–that we pay for, that’s supposed to represent us–gets up to wicked mischief like this.
This “lesson” was for eighth graders, 13-year-olds. It was perpetrated by the government, under the guise of Common Core–the federal government’s scheme for to micromanaging every public school classroom in America.
Why don’t we hear much about Common Core anymore?
Mostly because Common Core got real unpopular–so the states that had it stopped using the name and “rewrote” a lot of it. So a lot of states still have it. The Trump administration isn’t pushing it, but hasn’t been able to get rid of it entirely, either.
If we ever elect another Democrat president, Common Core will come roaring back in all its awfulness.
