Mark your calendars!!! On Tuesday, November 12 – 15, Minnesotans Against Common Core is taking part in a National Stop Common Core Profile Campaign on Facebook, Twitter and through Education Blogs. We ask everyone who is against Common Core to do the following:
1. Change your profile pic to the same Stop Common Core photo (to be provided).
2. Post on your personal wall asking each of your friends to also change their profile pic if they are against Common Core.
3. Post one article each day that week about Common Core. I am working on which articles to suggest. You can choose an alternate article if you don’t like the suggestions. The suggestions are meant to make this easy for everyone to just click share. The articles will be basic and avoid anything too political.
Many of the state groups are participating in this too so the photo and article suggestions will be the same everywhere. The idea is to flood our online social circle with the same message for four days. We are starting on Tuesday to avoid Veterans Day since many people like to post a themed photo on that day. The event will end on that Friday.
If you are not comfortable posting Common Core articles due to pushback from your facebook friends, make sure you have some facebook friends that have your back and can respond and comment on your wall.
We only have a few months to get the word out before our legislature begins their work. Let’s make sure everyone understands this issue!
