Dr. Ben Carson Speaks to Megan Kelly about The Naked Communist
We all know who Dr. Ben Carson is. He spoke to Megan Kelly a few years ago about The Naked Communist. Once again everybody has a viewpoint. I do know a time when those promoting Common Core told me as a teacher not to ever teach students how to write in cursive and not to teach multiplication unless students drew pictures when learning how to multiply two digit numbers.
So ask yourself did you learn how to write in cursive? Did many young people today learn how to write in cursive? Why do you have to draw pictures before you multiply? Well they call that the “old school.” Drawing pictures when learning how to multiply two digits numbers would frustrate anybody.
I didn’t agree with young people could not learn how to write in cursive and I sure didn’t make my students draw pictures when they already knew the basics to multiplication. But I did learn that is a big no no to those that support Common Core. So why did Common Core supporters think the young could not learn those two skills?
So back to Dr. Ben Carson. I don’t think he is a supporter of Common Core. So let’s listen to what he has to say about The Naked Communist.
