Homeschooling mom here

I'm SO glad I've decided to homeschool. I just wish that my siblings would decide to homeschool, as well, and find the means to accomplish it. I didn't realize how bad Common Core was until my sister called me and told me that her 6-year-old son is required to do double-digit addition. Required! He's going to be TESTED on it and everything! I hope I can convince her to opt-out of the testing. It's one thing if your child does math for fun. It's another matter entirely if your kindergardener is subject to rigorous testing on boring subjects.
