The Common Core Curriculum is so bad we need to force it on you! - September 25, 2013, 01:55 PM

Angry parent arrested in Towson, Maryland, for speaking out against the state's unpopular decision to adopt common core standards in the schools.

Common core is a miserable failure in the classroom, even though it's proponents hail the "higher standards" it installs. I believe the higher standards are a trojan horse for smuggling in a disastrous new teaching philosophy. For example, the "collaborative learning environment" is an eggheaded way of saying basically that we have the kids work together in small groups on problems, but basically they screw around and waste most of the day, possibly completing one math task at best.

Among you folks that are parents, what are your thoughts?

Here is some background on the common core.
