Common Core is Making Me More Stupid!

Some may shout "conspiracy theory" but I do not think it is too far out there, to say this is planning to make people dumber and unable to think. Look at the above, if adults can barely figure it out how are children going to figure it out?

Common Core Is Making Me Stupider

"As you may know if you follow me on Facebook, I pretty much hate, with a capital H-A-T-E, this “new common core” math being taught. Every day it’s a massive struggle for Chris and me, him with a Masters Degree and myself with a Bachelors, to teach 3rd grade homework to our daughter.
Putting aside that we work for hours past an already 8 hour school day, ignoring that we are provided no text books to learn about the material, and sweeping under the rug that they send home homework on things they have yet to even teach yet, we are doing our best.
But we are lost.
And I am a bit angry to tell you the truth.
Today was just another example of “fuzzy” math."

They used to train kids to be smart. Now they train them to be dumb.

Here is a test for 8th graders from 1912.

Compare that to the trash they teach today.

Dumb kids will (they hope) not grow into intelligent adults who are as smart as the 'elite' and would demand rights.

'Rearing future slaves' in other words. Mindless drones who pay their taxes and don't cause trouble.

The utopian society for the elect.

They are training them to be dumb, I can tell via these teaching methods, they want to massively muddy the waters. This is postmodernist math where absolute truth aka absolute correct answers are rejected. This is sickening, it will not work in the real world and they will render young people even less able to function. I think they want dumbed down slaves. Remember brains too along with health and bodies are being poisoned by the toxic food. They want future slaves who won't ask too many questions and who do not have the ability to think for themselves. This in my opinion is an active endeavor to destroy education. Only the very wealthy will then have education that teaches the children anything.
