reply: how do you know?
IDK, MAYBE A FUCKING QUICK GOOGLE SEARCH
Why do people not fucking fact check things??
Neither I nor the government maintain that a person must check their religious beliefs at the door. However, through the act of incorporation, you create a separate entity entirely. The petitioners are a for-profit, secular corporation, not a person engaged in the exercise of religion within the means of the defined criteria for exemption (i.e. they’re not a religious non-profit who qualify for ACA exemptions). The court of appeals already rejected the notion that the owners and the business are inseparable. They are distinct entities. Which is the whole purpose of incorporation to begin with. So to declare them indistinguishable because it suits the aims of the individual owners is to spit in the face of the entire concept and purpose of incorporation

This makes me really really mad. Under Common Core, children ARE taught basic math skills. The children ARE learning how to do basic subtraction. Of course they are. This exercise (and the whole number line process) aims to have children be able to visualize subtraction on a pictoral level. This is not meant to be the main way to subtract, as the parent implies. It’s a way to SEE math, and to understand what it means in a way that you can’t with SCA. Yes it is time consuming, but it’s SCHOOL. Jack got the answer wrong- He got 121. He simply forgot to subtract from the tens place. Witty parent responses to this are everywhere and they really really are terrible. Parents think that they understand Elementary/ Early Childhood Education because they have a degree in Engineering or whatnot. No. You’re not a teacher If you don’t understand what’s going on, don’t comment. This image is so misrepresentative of the Common Core and its lessons and it needs to stop being posted EVERYWHERE.
Additionally, the literacy aspects, as far as I have studied them, are great. A move away from deep content to one of more depth (a vertical, balanced approach) is a giant step forward
Is it perfect? No. But it’s not the end all be all of education. Nor was it designed to be such
