Over in the USA or The Peoples Republic Of Obamaland to give it the new official title the government is trying to implement a new education system named Common Core that guarantees to strip children of their individual personalities and turn out identical konformists.
It is based on the same principle as the “No Child Left Behind” policy introduced by the National Socialist Party Of Great Britain (the party formerly known as Labour) which tried to impose a system that lined up all children from less than wealthy homes at the starting line and nailed their little feet to the floor.
Naturally parents across the pond are as up in arms as British Parents about the schools system being set up to turn bright kids into retards (because you can never turn retards into bright kids and everybody must be equal.
To make sure every child is equal except those of the wealthy elite whose parents can afford private education, Common Core sets six year olds questions that insane nerds like Brian Cox, Marcus du Sautoy or Dara O’Briain might be able to answer but that an intelligient person would immediately see does not make sense. Like:
“What is a related subtraction sentence?
If you dont know, you may not be able to pass a mathematics exam designed for first graders under the Common Core curriculum guidelines.
The Daily Caller reports Carol Burris, an acclaimed New York high school principal who writes a blog about education issues, recently posted a first grade math test that one of her employees daughters had failed. The testwhich caught the eye of The Washington Posts Valerie Straussfeatures several questions with awkward wording that could trip up adults, to say nothing of six-year-olds.
Students are instructed to find the missing part. Question 1 shows five coins above the phrase part I know, and a cup with a 6 on it that is marked as whole.
Though the answer must logically be 1, the question isnt clear at all, wrote Burris.
Not clear? It quite clearly does not make any kind of sense.
My assistant principal for mathematics was not sure what the question was asking, wrote Burris. How could pennies be a part of a cup?
Several questions give a number, and then depict a box cut in half with some number of dots on one side and the rest of themor nothingon the other side. The question related to the boxes changes after each problem, and one asks students to choose the true statement that represents the boxout of 4 possible answers.
The most difficult question, Number 12, shows 4 black squares connected to 3 white ones, and asks, Which is a related subtraction sentence? Each of the answers are addition problems.
My nephews wife, who teaches Calculus, was stumped by that one, wrote Burris. Would (or should) a 6 year old understand the question ?
Though the entire curriculum seems unhealthily slanted towards subjects autistic savants excel in, abstract maths and theoretical physics, the language and humanities are pretty perverted as well. In the English course a lesson on possessive nouns contains Orwellian strictures on the relationship between the individual and government, such as The commands of government officials must be obeyed by all, and An individuals wants are less important than the nations well-being.
That says it all really, The New World Order is real and the march towards global Naziism is turning into a sprint
Freedom is slavery
War is peace
Ignorance is strength.
Just for interest I looked up the phrase Subtraction sentence: From the thinkmath website, this is their definition: “This is a school term, sometimes used in teaching math. The word has no formal mathematical definition.”
Well I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again,everything in the world is run by insane egomaniacs. The semi autistic shits in the education system are making up this bollocks and branding six year old retards for not understanding it. I wonder how long it will be before we find Common Core contrains a remedial program called Aktion T4 under which backward children are sent to “special hospitals” and subjected to “experimental therapies” in an attempt to cure them. T4 was the social classifiatiuon the Nazis gave to “useless eaters.”
