Teach our children the BASICS!!!!

Learning complicated concepts can not happen without learning the BASICS first.!! Whoever is writing core questions on tests for second graders is NOT an educator. They also don't understand how the brain works either!!! I scored in the top 1% of our country back in my day, graduated with a perfect 4.0 from RN program when I was 52 and had to turn students away from my study group. If I had small children today, I would HOME SCHOOL them. All my kids are teachers and they are struggling with this new CRAP you call knowledge. What is wrong with our government and the idiots who think our children don't need to learn the basics like we did? We have some of the greatest minds and inventions known in history. Now we are making our children stupid by trying to teach them concepts their brains ARE NOT READY to learn. They can mess with everything except my babies and their education. That's when this grizzly grandma is ready to start ripping off some faces. I don't know who is responsible, but maybe the idiot Republicans will at least let you stop this idiocy!! Of course, I'm sure they are the ones who want us lowly middle class to get stupid while their children go to private schools and learn like we did. HELP!!! Do your girls know their multiplication tables. My 17yr old granddaughter, who is gifted, doesn't!!! WTF?
