Hey Parents, You Need To Be “Retrained”.

The arrogance of educators and policy wonks who support Common Core has been pretty well documented over the last few years.

Grandad Learns About CC MemeWe’ve seen proponents slam parents, question parents ‘expertise’ when it comes to their own kids, launch smear campaigns, insult opposition on a regular basis and in general just default calling anyone opposing Common Core a liar.


Remember the Six One Seven video that mocked Grandpa, the elderly veteran? He clearly must need retraining. Just ask instructional Coach, Jennifer Patanella:

“The kids who come to us are a clean slate,” said Jennifer Patanella, an instructional coach with the Rochester public schools. “It’s the adults who have to be retrained.” – Breitbart

Excuse me, what? RETRAINED? I’m sorry, but are parents the dog in this scenario?

Translated: Your kids will be trained to jump through the overly convoluted and effed up Common Core math strategy du jour. Parents? You dummies. Get back in line. Be quiet.

    Right on, Andrea! Maybe they can put us parents and grandparents in Re-Education Camps if we don’t get with the Program. I have a master’s in mathematics education and decades of teaching experience, so I’m not interested in learning to do kindergarten math a new way.
