    A dull aching pain

    Ohanian note: I received this note from a longtime educator.

    Teacher view

    Doing some subbing and seeing the tedious work books around the Common Core for 6th grade math. I can't make children do nonsense that I can not even understand and they come to me for an explanation. There are numerous pages on the useless "manipulation" of negative and positive integers.

    The Common Core is a boon for the publishers. Much too much time spent reducing math to minute scrupulous operations leaving everyone with a dull aching pain.
