“Beyond the emotional arguments, the philosophical arguments, and the crazy arguments — there are a lot of crazy arguments against Common Core — there is a very practical argument” that supporters can’t answer, writes Erick Erickson on RedState: Moms (and Dads) cannot help their children with math homework.
The math does not make sense to the children or the parents, he writes. “Kids are taught multiple ways to add totals together, must still add the totals correctly, but then must explain their answers — often having to write essays for math problems.”
Common Core will be “the under the radar, sleeper issue of campaign 2014,” he predicts. People are very, very frustrated.
But who will they blame?
