#StopCommonCore Facebook Profile Picture Blast

Filed in Common Core State Standards by on November 11, 2013 1 Comment

1395880_10201899999596843_1783665425_nYou are encouraged to change your Facebook profile picture to a “Stop Common Core” picture this week from November 12th to November 15th.  We use our profile pictures to reflect who we are, what we love and what are passions are.  So why not use it to show your opposition to the Common Core State Standards for four days.

So this week we urge you to change your profile picture to the red and white picture seen to the right.

Leslie Beck of Iowa who is spearheading this effort said, “Use the same red and white picture as everyone else who does this. Do not show your creativity. Do not show your unique style. Show the world what it would be like if we were all the same, even if it is just in this one way. That is Common Core.  That is what we are doing to our children if we adopt Common Core and Next Generation Science Standards. Next up will be the Social Studies standards if we do not stop this train wreck. We are each unique and so are our children.”

Anyway, I’m changing my profile picture over tomorrow and I encourage you to do the same.

P.S…. we can do the same on Twitter as well.

    Thanks, Shane! This is definitely a team effort among many state and national groups. This week is about spreading awareness to a wider audience. Many people are just not aware of Common Core at all and the effect it is having on our schools, teachers, parents and most importantly, our children.
