Head hurts and Common Core have become synonymous. RedState editor in chief, talk radio host and Fox News contributor Erick Erickson took to Twitter to give Common Core the business.

This is McGraw-Hill's common core math book. It is crap.

.@EWErickson No, that’s what a specific textbook purportedly aligned to the #commoncore looks like.

Sigh. Sound familiar?

@EWErickson Yes, this is the game they play. When their scheme fails, faulty implementation is to blame. See also:

But Common Core has really done it now:

Dear Common Core creators, you have pissed off my wife. The 9yo had to deal with this tonight.

— Erick Erickson (@EWErickson) October 1, 2014

What in the heck? Be warned, Common Core. You have to deal with mama grizzlies now. And they won’t back down from protecting their children. Ever.

Here are some of the comments from Instagram:


More of the same from fed-up Twitter users.

@EWErickson I kind of naturally think like that as an adult. But that's pretty BS for a 9 y.o.

@EWErickson Same technique as for counting back change, isn’t it? I do that in my head, but it’s more complicated when written.

@EWErickson Wow!

@EWErickson that's one of those office jokes….right? Can't be real

This is utter nonsense. #CommonCore@EWErickson: The 9yo had to deal with this tonight.

@EWErickson @adnilhoom Notice Common Core creators have made it impossible 4 parents to help their kids w/homework? The state is in charge.

— Steph (@EternalRiteWing) October 1, 2014

Yep and speaking of that …

@michellemalkin My wife is sooo angry about this stuff. And even more angry that she’s effectively being told she’s too dumb to get it.

— Erick Erickson (@EWErickson) October 1, 2014


@EWErickson Yep. Welcome to our life for the last seven years.

— Michelle Malkin (@michellemalkin) October 1, 2014

And in an exit nutshell:

@EWErickson Man we call it Common Craziness here at our house. Most bassackwards way to teach conceivable.
