Mike Petrilli shared the “top” education policy people and organizations on Twitter in 2017. He based in on Klout scores and Twitter followers. I also noticed with the exception of Diane Ravitch I didn’t see anyone who was anti-Common Core.
I’d like to share my list of #StopCommonCore and #EndFedEd folks (and forgive me ahead of time I’m sure I’m going to forget someone) who are active on Twitter (they may not always tweet about education policy) along with a preview of some of their latest tweets. Be sure to add your suggestions in the comments.
