Louis C.K. Rants Against Common Core Math

Louis C.K. Goes on a Twitter Rant Against Common Core Math

It hasn't been a good month for supporters of Common Core. The same month that third- and fourth-graders were given exams based on the three-year-old program, two big comedians came out swinging against the controversial academic standards. First came Stephen Colbert who shed some hysterical satirical light on the national math program. And then, last night, Louis C.K. joined the fray with a Twitter rant against his daughter's homework. The NYC dad of two elementary-school-aged kids was dumbfounded by a math assignment his third-grader brought home, tweeting:

But that was just the beginning. Over the next three hours, he continued to post images of her assignments, questioning not only the concepts that Common Core is teaching but how the questions were written. And as the night drew on, his supporters joined in, with his original tweet receiving more than 6,700 retweets and more than 8,600 favorites. Take a look at the Twitter tirade below.
