Colbert’s hilarious takedown of absurd Common Core math problems
Common Core is nothing but liberal nonsense to try and make themselves feel good.
Check it out:
Comedy Central’s Stephen Colbert ripped into the Common Core standards on his Tuesday night show, ridiculing the absurd Core-aligned math problems that have baffled students, parents and teachers nationwide.
“Common Core testing prepares students for what they will face as adults: pointless stress and confusion,” he said with characteristic sarcasm.
The standards have been criticized for introducing federal control over local education matters. The Obama administration has encouraged states to adopt them by rewarding Core-aligned states with federal grants.
The standards require vigorous national standardized testing, which has provoked outcries among parents and teachers who consider the tests to be too difficult and a waste of time.
