Common Core also has data mining

Schools have already added Iris scanners for students to use, and also tracking ID cards students have to keep on them. As well as knowing what your religion is, what political views you have, are you gay and other very personal irrelevant information and other intrusive questions. It also inserts political views and ideologies into test and assignment questions and word problems. Global warming, presidential executives orders, rewording and changing the meaning to things like amendments in the constitution. It leaves the bureaucrats in Washington and the federal government in total control to dictate how what gets taught in schools on an unproven experimental program that comes with a hefty price tag for its uniform standard cookie cutter one size fits all approach to education, killing teacher flexibility and specialized education for individual students. Because common core is for primary school, once you enter high school, the learning curve will be steeper than it ever was before when you have to forgot common core, and do things the old way that is still used in high school, that you would have learned in primary school to begin with before common cores creation.

Initially common core was touted as being this super effective form of teaching that proved highly successful over seas, but they had to recant those claims when people here began to review it and research the claims. Then the federal government said they would not give federal funding to states that did not accept common core, forcing them to accept it if they wanted funding.

If you do not know why one of the pics is considered bad, let me know and I will explain.

I know mothers who are pulling their kids out of school right and left and looking for ways to home-school them because of ^THIS BULLSHIT. 

Pardon my French.

But this is bullshit.

Early math education nowadays is going down the toilet, it’s really sad. And the states spend such ridiculous amounts of money on these new, “better” ways of teaching math instead of teaching it the old way, which worked just find, and spending the money on more useful things like teacher salaries.

Well this is what I spent almost a week on, nearly without breaks. The idea is that Hans killed Elsa near the end and Anna had to run away with Kristoff to save herself. Despite what Hans thought, killing Elsa wouldn’t remove the winter, and so he started looking for Anna when he saw she was gone. He didn’t expect Anna, who had been toughened by the merciless wilderness of Arendelle, to be ready for when he finally did find her.

Thanks to the brilliant Gingerhaole for feeding my brain with such a wonderful au idea, and actually bringing me to make this reality, and thanks to everyone who kept me company in my livestreams. You make my world go round, guys!
