Florida School Drops Common Core – Soars To Number One

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

The charter school, Mason Classical Academy, in Naples, Florida, decided against forcing kids to learn using the Common Core method of teaching endorsed by Obama.

Teachers at the school rejected the Common Core State Standards Initiative due to the way it deliberately dumbs down children, creating unnecessary and complicated techniques for working out relatively simple problems.

Natural News reports: They have rejected the backward approach of Common Core, which sees kids memorize entire words in kindergarten before later being introduced to phonics once they are in elementary school.

By that point, their brains are already used to whole words, which makes grasping the concept of phonics and applying it far more difficult than it needs to be.

What does the classical approach embraced by the Academy entail? According to their website, language-focused learning based on written and spoken words makes the brain work harder to convert words into concepts, while image-based approaches encourage passivity.
