This Weeks Number One Video
In a way it does: the S9 and S9+ are the first modern smartphones with a variable aperture lens that can open as wide as f/1.5, the widest ever on a smartphone, and this makes it possible to capture a ton of light at night and allows shooting videos at nearly pitch dark conditions. At the same time, this f/1.5 camera is only used in those super low light scenes, while the majority of time the phone shoots at its other, f/2.4 setting that captures actually sharper photos.

Florida School Ditches Common Core – Soars To Number One!
- Other Apps
You can’t really argue with the evidence on this one. We all know Common Core is a complete disaster. Frustrated parents and underachieving kids everywhere need relief from this monstrosity. Common Core was pushed on states by the Obama administration (you know, he’s from Chicago and they have stellar schools, not!) and the majority of states adopted it, and have been implementing it since 2009. The Common Core State Standards are “a clear set of shared goals and expectations for the knowledge and skills students need in English language arts and mathematics at each grade level so they can be prepared to succeed in college, career, and life.” Sounds nice, doesn’t it? Who doesn’t want to succeed in life? Sign me up! Except, instead, it seems to be producing students who can’t even succeed in putting together a cohesive sentence, much less in passing state tests. Enter charter schools – publicly funded, but independent schools that have the freedom to choose their own curriculum and teaching methods, unlike general public schools. Charter schools are tuition free and are not affiliated with any religious background. They are simply alternative choices for those who find their public schools lacking. Charter schools often have extensive wait lists which shows how bad parents want alternative educational opportunities for their children. Thankfully, President Trump and Education Secretary DeVos are both big proponents of school choice and charter schools.
Perhaps you’ve seen examples of Common Core work like these provided by National Review that demonstrate how Common Core takes simple problems and unnecessarily complicates them to the point where parents can’t even help their children do their homework without pulling their hair out! It’s no wonder that kids exposed to Common Core are not excelling as they could be. When parents can’t even help their 3rd grader do math homework, something is seriously wrong. As Trump would say: sad! It’s no wonder parents are looking for alternatives.
Here we have solid evidence of a charter school that abandoned Common Core and produced incredible results. This charter school proves that “back to basics” teaching obliterates Common Core methods.
H/T: Your New Wire reports that a Naples, Florida charter school, Mason Classical Academy, proves that Common Core simply doesn’t produce the results of more traditional teaching methods. Mason Classical Academy rejected Common Core and is instead using good old fashioned phonics and traditional math to prepare its students for the future and their success is “YUGE”. Fifth graders at MCA score in the top 1% of the state on English Language Arts (ELA). Third graders excelled as well with 90% of students displaying proficiency compared to 58% county wide (which mostly relies on Common Core methodology). If you think that’s bad, consider that California third graders are at 43% and in Baltimore there are six districts in which not a single student is proficient in ELA or math! Not a single student!
Unfortunately, not all students have access to charter schools (in 2014, approximately 5% of public school students were enrolled in charter schools nationwide) like Mason Classical Academy and have no choice but to learn with Common Core. President Trump has been clear in his opposition to Common Core, saying “I am totally against Common Core” and “obviously Common Core doesn’t work.” But it is unclear, so far, what he and Education Secretary, Betsy DeVos, plan to do to get rid of it. Areas without charter schools could benefit from vouchers that can assist parents in sending their kids to private schools, many of which teach using traditional methods. Perhaps more success stories like MCA will make their way to the powers that be and we will see a return to sanity in our schools soon.
Make no mistake – Common Core is an experiment gone horribly bad. It’s too bad so many kids have already been robbed of a solid education because of this ridiculous curriculum. Hopefully, as evidence mounts from more schools like Mason Classical Academy, Common Core will quickly meet its end and charter schools and school vouchers will offer more choices to those stuck in the public school system. In the meantime, if you visit Baltimore, you might want to speak slowly and in short sentences.
