My school district's mandated English Language Arts assessment included having students watch a short YouTube video related to their grade level's writing prompt. Two teachers at my school got quite the surprise when they showed their mandated videos. The trailer for Ms. J.'s video had the b-word in it. Worse, Ms. Z.'s video started with the trailer for FIFTY SHADES OF GREY! Betcha didn't know that was Common Core.
Add this to the list of reasons we're homeschooling.
