Celebrity Louis C.K.'s Twitter Rant: 'My Kids Used to Love Math. Now It Makes Them Cry' Like any p.o.'d parent, the comedian Tweeted about his daughter's Common Core math problems By Drew Mackie Published on May 1, 2014 05:45 PM Share Tweet Pin Email Photo: Joe Scarnici/Getty If you’ve ever suspected that your kids’ math homework doesn’t add up, you’re not alone. Comedian Louis C.K. took to Twitter on Monday to express his bafflement at the kind of wackadoo math problems his daughters bring home – and to slam the Common Core standards currently being debated in the nation at large. In fact, he flat-out said that the educational initiative had ruined his daughters’ love of math. https://twitter.com/louisck/statuses/460765469746929664 Unlikely education pundit though he may be, Louis C.K.’s point resonated with thousands of Twitter users, including similarly exasperated parents and educators.
