I sure managed to pack in the cliches on that one didn't I?

On further reflection, now that I've gotten over my
shock, I should backpedal a little and retreat to my
previous position: Common Core Mathematics standards
are deliberately low and define the "poverty line" which
any truly living curriculum would seek to rise well
above.

Common Core Mathematics is deliberately not world class.
It defines a bar below which you would consider a patient
close to death, but above which there's some hope, some
vital signs.

Rather than waste my breath decrying Common Core
Mathematics, I'll just underscore that it's far far
below any standard you'd want for yourself if having any
aspirations to be mathematically informed. Anything
below Common Core is Brain Dead.

Here's a ranking:

Proficient
Getting There
Delayed
In Trouble / At Risk
Common Core
Brain Dead
