Re: Common Core
Idk, john. My daughter used a spiral textbook for math (Saxon) and a (gasp!) religious text for science (Apologia--though we supplemented info on evolution) in our homeschool, and she went on to college and has done fantastically well in her engineering studies there. Her brothers are using the same texts and I expect similar results.
Makes me wonder how much of what we pay for in schools is essential, you know?
One of the deepest feminine pleasures is when a man stands full, present, and unreactive in the midst of his woman's emotional storms. When he stays present with her, and loves her through the layers of wildness and closure, then she feels his trustability, and she can relax. -- David Deida, The Way of the Superior Man
