    "As the Department of Education is gradually comforming to the CommonCore way of teaching, Beacon has been at risk for changing in a way that would destroy the liberal arts, more deeply and critically thinking way teachers have been teaching their students for years. We don't take regents, which I love, because our PBA's are more focused on critically analyzing and presenting our ideas while making an argument for history and english, and then we have tests that match up to what we've actually learned in sciences and maths instead of using a book that doesn't allow creative learning. However, changes could be made in the future, unfortunately."
