I agree, that is a bit much for a fourth grader, and so did the the administartion. I am not quite sure how you think that indicts the entire concept of Common core. Do you think similar mistakes were ever made prior to common core?

"YISD administration is aware of an unacceptable assignment that was given to a fourth-grade class at Pasodale Elementary,” the statement said. “We apologize to the students and the parents who received this assignment,” the statement said. “Campus administration has addressed the issue with the teacher, and has taken decisive measures to assure that future assignments are aligned to the curriculum and are of the highest instructional caliber.”
