@MommysBigHeart @Salsamanfit @ThomasWic Bingo! My son is 17 and he started school when Obama's first term started. Common core was a disaster. Instead of teaching how to read and comprehend, they just taught you to memorize the words. Luckily for me, my son is a junior in high school now after getting a great math teacher in 8th grade that is going to NASA's aerospace program for a 2yr degree that he will get at same time as hs diploma. Trust me, its no thanks to the public school system.
