Don't believe what they tell you! Common core IS in Texas schools! Two yrs. ago, after my 2 younger children came home from school with ridiculous ways to solve math equations, I started researching this & discovered the truth! This crap is making my younger children HATE school! Even today I had a teacher told me, that common core was not in Texas! B.S.! It's just guised! And it's bipartisan led!, so don't just blame one side! They are all in it together!
