UPDATED: Check out this ‘frustrated’ father’s response to his child's Common Core homework

Update: Jeff Severt, the father who wrote the anti-Common Core note, joined Glenn on his TV show Tuesday night. Watch the interview below:

Original Story:

TheBlaze has reported on countless instances of strange ‘facts’ creeping into Common Core sanctioned materials and math problems that are to be solved with never-before-seen methodology. One ‘frustrated’ father who was trying to help his son with a Common Core mathematics equation ran into that very issue, and what he did next is making its way around the internet.

Below is the father's alleged response to the Common Core homework:

As TheBlaze’s Oliver Darcy reported, that photo was posted to a popular conservative Facebook page. While the photo was initially posted anonymously, the father has agreed to speak with Glenn on Tuesday’s Glenn Beck Program about the incident.

“I don't even begin to understand,” Glenn said of the Common Core reasoning. “It's so easy: 7 minus 6 is 1. 2 minus 1 is 1. 4 minus 3 is 1. It is so simple. This is the easiest of all math problems, and they have complicated it to how many steps? [It] takes 10 steps instead of 3.”

While Stu was willing to admit it is important to teach students different processes, this particular process over-complicates one of the simpler and more basic math principles.

“If you're trying to give them the benefit of the doubt, like they are trying to show the process and all this stuff,” Stu said. “But it's just counting. Like 7 minus 6 is 1. Like you learn these basic four or five things to do in math and you get through almost everything.”

Since there is really no logical explanation for much of the reasoning used in Common Core, perhaps the more cynical theory will actually prove to be true. If parents no longer understand how to help their kids with schoolwork, the role of the parent becomes less and less important.

“I think this is to discredit,” Glenn concluded. “Discredit parents and the old ways.”

Why are we letting criminals out of prison while putting pastors in? Pastor James Coates of Canada's GraceLife Church was recently fined, arrested, and put in maximum security prison for violating lockdown rules.

Rebel News founder Ezra Levant joined Glenn Beck on "Glenn TV" to discuss the story. Ezra said he's noticed a trend of government officials "picking on" Christians as "lockdownism" becomes almost a new kind of religion, and warned this might be just the start of more persecution to come.

As politicians and the mainstream media continue to insist that America is divided and at each other's throats, Dr. Ben Carson has a different message. He joined the "Glenn Beck Podcast" this week to discuss his time in the Trump administration and how we move forward and heal America. Overall, he says, we must realize "Americans are NOT each other's enemies."

Does parody even exist anymore? Filmmaker Ami Horowitz recently went to Yale University to ask students to sign his 'petition' to repeal the U.S. Constitution — and they actually did it!

Ami joined Glenn Beck on "Glenn TV" recently to describe how this wasn't just a few people — this was 65 percent of those he asked, and NO ONE seemed to think it was a bad idea.

The far left is tearing apart the social fabric of our country in the name of "progress." From its emphasis on government dependency, to the $15 minimum wage, to the embrace of Marxist Critical Race Theory in our schools, the Left is destroying our culture and way of life.

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck spoke with Christopher Rufo, director of the Center on Wealth and Poverty, about the latest insane example of the Marxist lies destroying the minds of our kids: A New York school sent parents a "white identities" chart advocating for "white traitors" and "white abolitionists."
