#CommonCore This is how the Government gets the unemployment rate.



What. The. Fuck. Is. This. Shit.

what “progressive” education in america is turning into.

THE FUCK’S THIS SHIT

what the hell is that supposed to even mean? I had to read over the explanation twice, and I’m taking algebra 2. 

I think it’s supposed to be teaching kids that 8+5 and 10+3 are the same thing, but that’s not really phrased well?

The question is confusing as hell.
I mean, yeah- you pass by 10 on the road to 13 using the 8+5 expressway, but you don’t stop there.
It’s an idiotic concept to begin with. Why bother asking the question? What possible purpose does that answer have?
I feel like I’m taking crazy pills.

My 8 year old niece is currently dealing with this bullshit. Let me tell you, I have never felt so bad for her in my life. She has literally cried in the shower saying “I don’t get it, why don’t I get it”. Simply because of the common core method bullshit. If you went into a job today and used this common core crap, you would either be fired, or not get the job. This is the worst thing to happen to the public school system since I can remember.

Is it some kind of lateral thinking exercise? If so- why are they trying to get 3rd graders to think this way?
What is the lesson here?

as every day passes, homeschooling looks like an increasingly viable option


My siblings came home with work like this. It took me 10 min to figure out what the hell the question was asking. And I told her it was a stupid, useless method and not to worry about it. Just do it and forget it.

HISTORY MEME | 1/10 moments: Jadwiga is Crowned King of Poland.

The coronation ceremony that took place in the Wawel Cathedral in Krakow on 16 October 1384 was truly a splendid event: Polish nobles spared no expenses and the grandeur of the coronation impressed everyone present. But the historical significance was even greater. For one thing, the young girl who was being crowned (only 11 years old at the time) was to go down in history as one of Poland’s greatest and most beloved Monarchs. And for another, the aforementioned lady was crowned not as Queen of Poland (as would be expected considering her gender) but as King.
There is no humorous tale of a mix-up: the decision was made for quite practical reasons. Polish law was very specific that the ruler had to be King – but it did not state the King had to be a male. And so instead of re-writing the law and to emphasise the fact Jadwiga was a ruler in her own right, it was decided she should be crowned as Hedvig Rex Poloniæ (Hedwig, King of Poland) and not Hedvig Regina Poloniæ (Hedwig, Queen of Poland).

Telling mentally ill kids to ‘stop using their mental illness as an excuse’ is ableist as hell and makes them hate themselves for their mental stuff. Mental illness is a valid reason for being unable to do things. Andy & Unknown (via mourningmelody)

Yeah, I might have watched a movie and gotten kind of mad.

This is seriously a trope I’d love to never see again though.

Decided to make a handy graphic after seeing a lot of misinformation spread around tumblr. Current science isn’t perfect and definitions are bound to change, but I wanted to push back against the hostile attitude against it because it seems like a lot of people are being hostile for the wrong reasons.

Please let me know if there are any factual errors, thank you :)
