    Well, America: if you thought the people behind the Common Core couldn’t possibly be any more moronic or tone deaf, you were wrong.

    A Common Core worksheet handed out this year in a sixth-grade history class in Bryant, Ark. required students to ditch two amendments from the Bill of Rights, reports EAGnews.org. Students were also told to plug their rights eliminations by creating “a visual aid that could act as a clear representation of your proposal.”

    EAGnews says the assignment is part of the Common Core State Standards Initiative, an attempt by educrats to standardize various K-12 curricula across the country. This fall, 45 states and the District of Columbia have begun implementing the curriculum.

    The assignment’s instructions, which include hideous grammatical errors such as the use of the plural pronouns “they” and “their” to refer to the singular noun “government,” tell students that “the government of United States is currently revisiting” the first 10 amendments to the U.S. Constitution.

    Unknown federal officials “have determined” that the Bill of Rights “is outdated and may not remain in its current form any longer,” the instructions say.

    Consequently, the sixth-graders were asked to “participate on the National Revised Bill of Rights Task Force.” They were required to “omit two and add two amendments to the Bill of Rights.”

    At least one local parent is livid about the rights-scrapping assignment, reports Digital Journal.
