Unhappy Hillsboro moms teaching kids math at home

HILLSBORO, Ore. (AP) — Nine parents in Hillsboro are holding their seventh- and eighth-graders out of school to teach them math at home because they are unhappy with the new Common Core curriculum this year in Oregon public schools.

KATU reports (http://bit.ly/1dpA5Hv) mothers teach math a home for about an hour in the morning and send their children to school for the rest of the day.

Evergreen Middle School Principal Rian Petrick says there are fewer numbers and more word problems and group work in the new curriculum. He says that's tough for some kids.
