Common Core Kills Minds
Years ago, a friend brought her daughter to me as a vestal sacrifice… just kidding.. she brought her because she was failing algebra as a senior in High School, and could not understand her books or class work.
I pulled out a 1840′s Mathematics book based on Euclid’s Elements(note), and told her to just sit and read, and then do the problems for each chapter and to call me if she needed help.
She never called me for help..
She got an “A” on her final exam, and passed the school year.
Common Core destroys a student’s of self-confidence and their faith in common sense. It is also repetitive conditioning of young minds to unquestioningly accept authority because reality becomes incomprehensible.
Common Core Kills Minds, but then, perhaps that was the point...

EDIT: 16 July 2017 One teacher expresses it this way HERE:
“My conclusions of what public education has become are in the article series “Public education: bullshit to train stupefied work animals” that can be easily searched and found by author Carl Herman.” < link
Note: “Euclid’s Elements has been referred to as the most successful and influential textbook ever written. Being first set in type in Venice in 1482, it is one of the very earliest mathematical works to be printed after the invention of the printing press and was estimated by Carl Benjamin Boyer to be second only to the Bible in the number of editions published, ” Wiki
Jeffrey Weiss said: “Best book written on the subject”
