    Okay folks, I am on a quest. Grass roots help and a few seconds of your time is all I need. You don't even need to get up off the chair you are sitting on in front of your computer.


    If you do not know what common core is, I am asking you to find out 1st before participating in this exercise.

    My Local County Newspaper is conducting a Poll about how people feel about Common Core. My County only has a population of 20,000 persons (yes it is that small). I want to make the Newspaper Editor and others to sit up a take note. I want to shock the heck out of them. Probably less than 5000 people subscribe to this newspaper. I would love to see 10,000 or 20,000 people vote in this simple poll. It only will take a few seconds and 2 clicks. One click on the link below, and a second click on the poll on the middle right hand side of the page that comes up. Please vote on this poll. *** this poll is now closed *** Thanks to all who voted. My guess is John Ayres, the owner and editor of this small newspaper was not pleased with the results.
    The following disclaimer has replaced the location in the paper where the poll was; Comments expressed on the poll page do not reflect the views of the Gilchrist County Journal.

    Again, I say, thanks. We rubbed it in their face and they really had very little to say in reply. I don't know what the final tally was, but last time I looked it was 94-96% anti common core.

    Gilchrist County Journal. *** now just a link to my local county paper ***

    If you want to leave a comment about common core, you can do that also right after you vote.

    and ...... if all this strikes your fancy in it's audacity, act quickly and pass this on to others (family and friends and ask them to vote on the poll.

    Thanks a million ...... I wish! wouldn't that shock the heck out of them?

    i am 100% against it, end of story. whatever numb skull came up with "common core" is an idiot.

    The way math is taught in CC is ridiculous to say the least. My daughter's homework last year took 10 times longer due to the extra work for common core. I showed her how to do the same problem using "traditional" methods and she completed the work much faster, but she couldn't use that work because she had to show the CC work. :eek:

    taking simple math 7 + 7 = _____ , easy right? Well with common core it becomes 7 + 7 = 7 + (3 + 4) = (7+3) + 4 = 10 + 4 = 14 - yes really that's how it's broken down. split the second number so that added to the first you get a multiple of 10 , then add the remainder to the multiple of 10.

    And when teachers have to send out "cheat sheets" to the parents so that parents can understand how the CC works, you something is really broken.
    Really, what happened to the "simple math", add the ones column, then add the 10's column, etc. The "new" way is JUNK.

    love the "New language" too. "borrow" becomes "take a 10 and regroup it as ten ones".

    Done venting for now.

    Sorry to say but my jr high student got an F in math. We had a conference and I looked at his work. The answers were all right but he but he failed to show his long winded common core work and he refused to explain how he got his answer in two different ways, he did the problem in his head and wrote the answer but was told he was wrong. How can getting the right answer be wrong? I tried to explain to the teacher that when you work the boss is not going to want to see two explanations. Nor is he going to care about all this other garbage. The correct number and quickly will be all that matters in the work place.

    Common Core is just another means for the lib's to try and re-write history and teach with their slant (lies) about how we came to be as a nation, our struggles, achievements, rights, and values as a republic amongst the many other things they are trying to misconstrue... all to train new generations of drones into believing the government is their savior & lifeblood....

    It is intended to split the generations. "Oh, Mom and Dad don't understand todays Math. They're old." This galvanizes the kids of today with their generation and instills within them the idea that they are somehow superior to the generations that have gone before them.

    They are creating a singular class.

    Voted and happy to have done so. Nothing really more to add to the conversation other than it's BS and my state voted it out.
