According to Natural News, mental illness is also found in the new “Common Core” curriculum, spearheaded by the federal government, which seems intentionally designed to make children mentally ill and as confused as possible.
Case in point: See this homework assignment from an elementary school in New York. The “mathematics” exercise instructs children to “Draw the cubes you colored in the number bond” and then “Show the hidden partners on your fingers to an adult.”
The final instruction asks students to “Color the fingers you showed.”
Here’s another Common Core lesson that just baffles the mind. The lesson asks children to “Match the picture with the fraction that names the shaded part.”
The schoolchildren will get extra credit by “telling how you made each match.”
Finally, there’s one more Common Core exercise that the Daily Caller has named the “worst math question in human history.”
Here’s the question: “Juanita wants to give bags of stickers to her friends. She wants to give the same number of stickers to each friend. She’s not sure if she needs 4 bags or 6 bags of stickers. How many stickers could she buy so there are no stickers left over?”
How can a child ever learn to think on his/her feet when all you give them are multiple choice questions? Sometimes the answers to life are designed on the spot, they’re not all presented as A, B, C, D or all or none of the above.
How can a child develop his/her brain when all you give them to solve are fill-in-the-blank questions? Again, this does not require the child to figure anything out, only to recall rote memory skills and dates and names.
How can a child ever make split decisions, and not stress out about them, if they learn math that has nothing to do with the real world? Business math should be core curriculum, not confusing word problems that don’t even have any relevancy to the real world, and real application to modern day life.
Kids are brilliant and technical, but they are also organic beings that like challenges and creative “thinking.” You can’t keep kids in a box all day, serving them boxed food and asking them “boxed” questions that have only five boxed answers.
