This is the reason girls love to be "daddy’s little girls": because if you complain to your dad, you know he will do something about it! Little did Louis C.K’s daughter know what she would start by simply complaining about her difficult homework!

"My kids used to love math. Now it makes them cry. Thanks standardized testing and common core!" he tweeted. Louis C.K tweeted about his daughter’s newfound hate for mathematics, the same feeling that so many children are faced with today. Why? Common Core testing, otherwise known as the miraculous test sweeping its way through schools all over the country. Louis C.K is not the only parent concerned. There are many moms and dads, teachers, principals, and test publishers that have major problems with this set of national academic standards. Teachers, study guides, and general help are all there for a reason. It is all a part of the learning process, yet all of this is being taken away, and students are expected to pass with flying colours. The American Federation of Teachers' President, Randi Weingarten, has said the new testing system (CCSS) is inappropriate for kids ranging from kindergarten to third grade. Even so, we have the Secretary of Education Arne Pearson, who firmly believes in these standards, and Bill Gates paying millions to have this test enforced.

The tweet by Louis C.K has finally gotten everyone’s attention, all thanks to a few tweets! Everyone is starting to question to Common Core, but where these questions will lead is still a mystery. Hopefully someplace helpful! It is a shame that a child’s intelligence should be based on one test, especially considering the terms of the test. Seriously, who remembers when the third grade was fun and not causing kids to hate school? Keep Up With PopWrapped On The Web!
