Last week I shared individuals who I encouraged you to follow if you are Twitter. Today I wanted to share some organizations that have been involved in fighting against Common Core, as well as, a federal encroachment into education. A disclaimer, not every organization solely tweets about education policy, and they may not hold opinions on other aspects of education policy that we all agree with. That said, these are groups that you include in your Twitter feed. Also, these are groups that are currently active on Twitter and I’m sure I’m going to miss someone so I am not going to claim it as exhaustive. If I miss any organization (not an individual) please add them in the comments (be sure to include the link to their Twitter account and be sure to add only Twitter accounts that have tweeted in the last month or two).
