Common Core: 'Pimps’ And ‘Mobstaz' For 4th Graders (Video)

By Susan Duclos

Parents in Vermilion Parish, Louisiana are upset over a homework assignment handed to their 4th grade children which included the words "Po Pimp” and “mobstaz," but the school claims it is age appropriate according to the Common Core education standards.

One mother, Brittney Badeaux told Fox News, "I try to instill values in my son. My goal is for him to ultimately to become a great man, a family man, a well-rounded man. And now my son wants to know what a pimp is."

This outraged mother also takes issue with schools sending children home with work that includes intentional misspelling.

 "“I couldn't believe it at first – hearing him read it to me. So I looked at the paper and read the entire article. It was filled with Ebonics, "Badeaux states. She continues "I try to teach him morals and respect and to speak correctly."

The Common Core State Standards initiative is a plan devised by the nation’s governors and backed by the Obama administration to set a uniform standard for grades K-12. In practice, it will ensure that every child in the nation reaches the same level of learning. So far, 45 states have agreed to use Common Core – including Louisiana.
