WASHINGTON D.C. – The White House is imposing what some are calling a controversial new curriculum called Common Core in schools across the country.
In a YouTube video, a curriculum coordinator in Chicago explains how through this new program students can actually get the answer wrong, but still receive full credit.
She said, “Even if they said 3×4 was 11, if they were able to explain their reasoning and explain how they came up with their answer, really in words or in oral explanations […] but they just got the final number wrong, we’re really more focusing on the ‘how’ …”
Anna Kooiman asked whether this is a continuation of the “wussification” of America.
“This is not going to work in the real world if this child becomes a doctor and decides to operate on the wrong knee!”
