Is your child's school doing common core yet? How do you feel about it? What state are you in, even if there school doesn't do common core:-)


Just curious, we struggle every night with common core math and absolutely hate it. We are buying a house next year and will homeschool until then we are aucking up common core :-(

I think my daughter's school is doing. I even think her preschool was doing it. I am not sure about the whole thing. I haven't read anything about it or what changes things from when I went to school.

We are in NY. I absolutely hate common core. It makes it difficult to help my kids with homework because its not even close to how we learned how to do it. All the teachers here hate it too.

Absolutely horrible. GA is supposed to be doing it, but they're not. At least, where we are isn't. And when they do I'll homeschool

We do common core here..... I feel like it's more about testing kids than really teaching. I like higher standards... Just not stressing out kids even more than before with the testing that comes with CC Standards.

We are working on getting rid of CC and adapting state standards.

My son starts kinder in the fall and I'm not sure if his school does common core or not. I've heard about it though and do not look forward to it lol.

It's sad when we are teaching to test, not teaching for kids to actually learn.

My kindergartener was tested more than once this year on different materials. Kindergarteners shouldn't experience that kind of stress. The first state test was given on day 10 of school.
