This week’s Glazov Gang was joined by superstars Basil Hoffman, a Hollywood actor (“Rio, I Love You”), Ann-Marie Murrell, the National Director of PolitiChicks.tv and Ernie White, a Civil Rights Activist.

The Gang discussed Insane Math Lessons and Common Core, analyzing the Left’s real agenda in making arithmetic mindbogglingly confusing for American children (starting at the 13:40 mark).

The discussion occurred with the context of The Cancer of Common Core, in which the guests discussed Holocaust-Denial Assignments for American Children, how Islam is a big investor in the Left’s new educational concept, how Mao’s Cultural Revolution has now reached America’s public schools, how individualism is being crushed in the new “raising of standards,” and much, much more:

    After thousands of years, hasn’t there been a world wide accepted way to teach kids arithmetic?

    These “alternative” methods are used to justify the millions spent to develop new curriculum’s and books – but the bottom line, do kids master the basics?

    The millions spent line the pockets of corporations but confuse kids and their parents.

    Why is the US 29th in student achievement – despite the US spending the most on education?

    Throwing money at the problem does not fix it. The methodology is flawed.

      see my comment above.

    Common Core mathematics tries to indoctrinate the children into the leftist way of thinking, it’s a political program more than a math program.

    Though I wanted to share this important video with friends, I was unable to do so because of the totally unnecessary, and in poor taste “joke,” that opens up the session…. WHY???

        Thank you… I’m still perplexed at the necessity to interject that joke, which diminishes the seriousness of what proceeds…

    “the Left’s real agenda in making arithmetic mindbogglingly confusing for American children”, yes, if they cannot compute correctly they will not understand when the gov’t is confiscating a bigger portion of their meager income. That is the whole point, to grow ignoramus children to better control them.

    • Notalibfool

      Well said! None of the left’s programs are really about helping people; it’s all about controlling them.

    I’ve already talked to people whose children don’t want to go to school now because of this ridiculous Math, its not logical.

    Have to disagree with this assessment.
    When I taught my son math, how to count stuff (and not be rote memorizing but understanding the concept) I used my own methods which are similar to the common core. This is the way I think of math like algebra and trig. In fact it will make it easier or kids to understand algebra when they know WHY 2 + 2 = 4, NOT just because IT IS.

    Common Core is EVIL indoctrination, Not education!
