In my experience I feel that there is a big divide between the “back to basic” and “discovery” groups of teachers. When you have this at a school it really hurts students from year to year when teachers are not on the same page. Students are often unsure of what to do when they don’t have a fact memorized and often resort back to strategies that are inefficient, but comfortable with (like counting on, or skip counting).
