PAINESVILLE, Ohio – Frustrated over the complex teachings of Common Core math, an Ohio dad decided to take to Facebook to commiserate with fellow parents over the painstaking teaching practices.
Doug Herrmann, a father of two, wrote a check to his child’s elementary school using controversial Common Core practices. He then snapped a picture and posted it to Facebook, according to FOX 8.
Herrmann’s Facebook post has been shared thousands of times in less than a week and is now in publications across the country.
He told FOX 8 he never actually sent the check into the school. He wrote it, snapped a picture and tore it up.
His picture was his way to prove the point on how Common Core math is difficult and how it’s nearly impossible to use it in daily living practices.
