In yet another brilliant Common Core homework response, this parent showed why Common Core and test-prep homework is beyond ridiculous. She has a child with special needs, and this is what she wrote about it on a Facebook group:
Asking a child with a language based learning disability who struggles to articulate his thoughts in written words is difficulty enough….now expect that child to write out a lengthy written analysis of the mathematical process that are basically automatic….that’s pure torture….this common core “ccrap” has got to go…hence my response to my son’s homework last night….
People in power, who aren’t profiting from this insane corporate education reform, need to realize this is not only bad for regular students, it’s a nightmare of epic proportions for special needs children. How good is anything is someone has to suffer? Please parents, just opt out now. Don’t let your state try to trick you into this and say it’s not your legal right to opt your child out of the Smarter Balanced Assessment or PARCC test. This is NOT about helping students, it’s about helping wallets, stock portfolios and hedge funds. And none of that will benefit the other 99% of the country.
