Layton Elliot, the math chair at Brebeuf Jesuit Prepartory School in Indianapolis, IN, recently testified against the Common Core Math Standards during the Indiana Legislative study committee hearing last Tuesday.
I’ve been told by those who live in the area that this school is well-respected in the community, in particular, their math department. Catholic schools in Indiana (and elsewhere) seem to have bought into the Common Core State Standards. This testimony should serve as a warning from one of their own.
Don’t go there.
Also Catholic schools that feed into Brebeuf Jesuit should reconsider their support of the Common Core as they will be doing their students a disservice as they enter high school.
