Some of you may remember my rant about Common Core math from last November. Well, this article on the results of the New York Common Core Algebra Regents test justifies all of my feelings.

I struggled all year to try to help my daughter with her Algebra 2 common core math. No text books, teachers who had no idea what they were teaching or how to teach it, no help at all for a parent who took algebra over 35 years ago (thank God for the internet). Apparently the kids didn't get this common core crap either, as a grade of 25 will be rounded up to a passing grade of 65 for this year's regents and a raw grade of 50 will get you an 80. What a wasted year. Somebody PLEASE tell me what is wrong with the old way of teaching math? You know, when the math said that a 25 was a failing grade. Amazing! So these kids are going to "pass" the test, but did they actually learn anything this year?
