Louis C.K. has long made his life as a parent — and the struggles to impart good values to his two daughters — among the most important subjects for his comedy. But now he’s getting serious.
Last night, C.K. sent out a series of tweets about his daughter’s struggles with homework designed to align with the Common Core, a controversial initiative hinging on standardized testing in order to impart a shared set of English and math skills to students. That’s the goal, at least, but C.K.’s children, who C.K. says are New York public school students, are among those who’ve found the implementation of the Common Core a struggle. C.K. called the Common Core a “massive stressball that hangs over the whole school” in his series of tweets.
