Before there was Common Core there was this 1912 8th grade test for Bullett County Schools in Kentucky.
I want all Common Core supporters to take this 1912 8th grade test, and then tell me how many 8th graders could pass this test. Remember, this was before the leftists took control of education in the nation and the creation of the Department of Education. Two questions. Were schools more effective before all that interference with local parental control or did they become more effective now with centralized control. This appeared here.
And for all those Common Core supporters that take this test and fail it. Go here for a list of answers. You might also wish to review this 8th grade test from Salina Kansas in 1895.
