5. It never went away, unfortunately,

We live in a rural area so private schools were not an option. We spent a lot of time tutoring our kids. It worked for us, because we were both well educated and had the ability to help our kids. So many of our rural kids just do not have anyone to help them. They end up thinking they are not good at math, thanks to to Everyday Mathematics curriculum. There was not a parent who did not hate it that they could not help their kids.

At least when our kids were little the horrid curriculum was limited to math. Now thanks to Common Core the same thing is being done to every subject.

How does someone like Arne Duncan keep getting more and more power? He is a total nut case.

Thanks for your insights!
