Freaking a, I thought listening to someone stutter was bad, but "reading two people" stutter is crazy.  My head hurts.

Does anybody have a link to a brief explanation what the common core is about? 

Or can somebody explain it very simply?

From the ever so reliable Wikipedia lol:

 

 

The Common Core State Standards Initiative is an educational initiative in the United States that details what K-12 students should know in English language arts and mathematics at the end of each grade. The initiative is sponsored by the National Governors Association (NGA) and the Council of Chief State School Officers (CCSSO) and seeks to establish consistent educational standards across the states as well as ensure that students graduating from high school are prepared to enter credit-bearing courses at two- or four-year college programs or enter the workforce.

Seems like a sensible thing to do, so I guess lots of people are against it in the USA

This is actually my first time hearing about it, but it really does make sense.  Prime example.  I moved from southern California in the middle of my 6th grade year in school to Memphis.  The things we were doing in 6th grade in California, I didn't get to until 8th grade in Memphis.  I was so bored here I almost got skipped a grade.  I can't remember what happened with that, but it was some bs with the school board.  But there definitely needs to be some consistency across the states, because it's kind of sporadic in where students are in the same grade across all of the states.

My kids started common core last year and it is ridiculously stupid.  They didn't learn half the stuff I learned at their grade level.  I am extremely disappointed that schools are using this crap and fear that by the time my child graduates high school she will be utterly unprepared to work anywhere besides Walmart or McDonald's and certainly I don't feel she will be at a level acceptable for entry into college.  I'm now considering home schooling her.
