Florida School Ditches Common Core – Soars To Number One

Florida School Ditches Common Core – Soars To Number One

A school in Florida that dumped the Common Core program in favor of traditional teaching methods has soared to the number one position in the State’s top schools list, according to government statistics.

Mason Classical Academy, a charter school in Naples, Florida, decided against forcing kids to learn the Obama endorsed Common Core method of teaching, due to the way it deliberately dumbs down children and created unnecessary and complicated methods for working out relatively simple problems.

Liberals, you don't need to re-write The Constitution....You just need to re-read it.

The article is aimed at people who know nothing about either Common Core or modern curriculum. Here's the quote:
When asked to solve 530-270, the student arrives at the right answer by subtracting the way most of us were taught in school. Although the student got the right answer, his teacher wanted him to solve it by adding 30 to both numbers so the problem would then be 560-300
The problem cited isn't part of the old worksheets for dummies arithmetic that you probably had in school. This particular lesson isn't about the fundamentals of subtraction, those problems don't start with three-digit numbers, it is about the much more important equals sign = Namely, kids are learning how adding to both sides of the subtraction operator works. Fundamental to algebra and calculus, levels of math which Trump voters never got to in school.

This isn't a surprise - when the left claims they are 'progressive', this is to dispel the reality that they are actually 'regressive'
Communism sounds good on paper unless you are reading a history book
