A Network Connecting School Leaders From Around The Globe
There is a famous picture of a little girl crying because she can’t do a second-grade math problem, and neither can her mother. Probably millions of people have seen this picture. Certainly the experts in charge have seen this picture. They do not relent. They keep on pushing this idiotic pedagogy. The kids cry. The parents don’t know how to help them. It's all captured in this one picture.
In the article I compare the Common Core Syndrome to the rape and murder of Kitty Genovese years ago when witnesses did not make enough noise to save the victim. The point is, we see the suffering but we don’t do what needs to be done.
"K-12: Does anyone care that kids cry?"
