Agrees to get rid of the freaking common core. I cannot even understand my first grader's math homework. It' isn't that the instructions are difficult to understand but ... damn they are. I mean she is in first grade and pretty much learning multiplication. Half the time she's in tears because she doesn't understand and I have no clue how she is supposed to do it. I'm actually pretty sure I'm screwing her up by telling her to "just figure it out this way" instead.
I'm not dumb. I have a college degree for goodness sakes but I really do not like the way math is being handled. It's extremely frustrating. Does anyone else feel like an idiot when helping your kid with their homework?
