Here is a 1st grade homework assignment from a Catholic school child in Jacksonville, Florida. The assignment is Common Core based. The page contains 2 editorial mistakes that completely undermine any academic value:
1. The homework assignment includes a picture for the 2 + 2 problem which is illustrated by a depiction of 3 objects plus 2 objects.
2. There is a grammatical error at the bottom where the child is asked to draw one pink squares.
This is just one simple example of what Common Core aligned education is doing to our children. It confuses our children, the entire Common Core plan is not to teach our children and the cost of the guidelines, curriculum and assessments are just robbing our wallets.
