Common Core: The Results Are In, And They Aren't Pretty

December 9, 2016

According to a new global report, American high schoolers are performing dismally in math classes compared to the rest of the world, which many people attribute to the wide implementation of Common Core standards.

In the 2015 Program for International Assessment (PISA) test results, released on December 6, determined that American students performed 12 points lower than they did in 2012, putting them 20 points below the international average, reports The Associated Press. The examination measures the performance of 15-year-old students across the world and compares them to each other, alternating each year between science, reading and math.

"Students are often good at answering the first layer of a problem in the United States," Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development's Education Director Andreas Schleicher told AP. "But as soon as students have to go deeper and answer the more complex part of a problem, they have difficulties."

Science and reading scores remained stagnant near the international averages. Math results have been declining since 2009 – shortly before Common Core's inception.

Oblahblah's been such a disaster for the USA. Common core completely obliterates any students capacity to do math. Perhaps it fine for 32-12=20 but how in hell are kids supposed to (for ie) calculate standard deviation with such abysmal understanding?

"No student left behind" is one of the worst policy decisions ive ever read about in my lifetime. Every other country is trying to create genius, the US is trying to create a race to the bottom. 

This constant devaluation of competition breeds uneducated sheep.  Nobody says we need to churn out bullish capitalist pig dogs... put healthy competition pushes us to strive. Competition is a good thing when it becomes enjoyable... and it sorts the wheat from the chaff.

Here is what it comes down to, Our education system, prior to all the "no child left behind" and COMMON CORE , was just fine. WE PUT  A FREAKIN MAN ON THE MOON WITH SLIDE RULERS FOR CRYING OUT LOUD! Now, every english speaking child in school has to wait for an influx if non english speaking immigrants to learn our language first,  so resources are diverted AWAY from our children, yet ANOTHER drawback of unfettered immigration. SOLUTION: Take EVERY progressive movement of the last 30 years and DESTROY it!
