1st Common Core Students to Graduate High School Are Worst Prepared in Years! Grads are least prepared for college in 15 years after full 4 years of Common Core
The first high school students to graduate after completing four full years of the controversial Common Core teaching method have turned out to be the worst prepared for college in 15 years.Since Common Core was fully phased in nationwide, student test scores in the United States, on the nation’s broadest and most respected test, have dropped for the third time in a rowThe drop is a reversal of the upward trend that was experienced between 1990 and 2015.The class of 2019 is the first to experience all four high school years under Common Core, yet it has come out as the worst-prepared for college in 15 years, according to a new report.
Students must sit a federally mandated test in reading and mathematics - the National Assessment of Educational Progress - every other year from grades four to eight, while other subjects and grade levels are also tested periodically.The latest results were released Wednesday and show that American students slid yet again on nearly every measure.
The left's 'brilliant' ideas social experiments never seem to work. Or...do they work perfectly?
I think you said it all, Jodi! Their experiments worked perfectly!
Jodi, you are 100% correct. Common Core has worked perfectly for the Left. A complete and total dumbed down generation, indoctrinated in Socialism and weak mindedness will be the Left's voting block for many generations to come. Remember, these not-so-bright high school graduates will still make it to college and universities across the nation, where the Socialist frosting will be slathered all of these snowflake cupcakes. Make no mistake, the Left has been cultivating chaos, insanity, illiteracy since America's inception. The Left has been patient and diabolical in their destruction of America's successful experiment in government. The only way for the Left to succeed was to breed, cultivate and indoctrinate an entire generation of weakened lemmings that have been taught that they can't and shouldn't have to think for themselves. To my chagrin, the Left has finally grown the crop of malcontents they needed to take over the Republic. Also, they are in fact making their move today, even as we speak. They have achieved success in the minds of the millennial's, who now number in the hundreds of thousands where 7 out of 10 prefer Socialism to Democratic forms of government, because they've never been taught the truth about Socialism, Communism, or for that matter, the benefits of Capitalism.
I watched a video of someone doing Common Core math and just solving a simple math problem took at least 5 times longer to do it than normal. I remember seeing a Facebook post of a kid holding up a sign that said "Old math took us to the moon and back". That's probably the best argument you could give for "old" math, the math that built civilization as we know it.
