Common Core Curriculum - anyone else's child struggling?

Hi folks, our state just adopted the Common Core C this year. My 10 year old is in 4th grade and until this year was able to be successful without med’s by depending on the 504 and the great teachers at school. But the work has PILED on this year and for the first time he is below grade level across the board and he’s working 2-3 hours a night on homework! UGH! We are looking at the possibility of med’s to help him keep up. He’s super frustrated. (I can live with lower grades but can’t see him so unhappy,,,) Anyone else running into a hard time with Common Core C?


My daughter is in 2nd grade and is struggling especially with the cc math!!  By the time she gets home her frustration level is at her breaking point!!!
