We are gearing up for our first campaign!
The goal of this campaign is to spread a thorough awareness of Common Core, its effects on education, and the ultimate reversal of Common Core legislation in Ohio. National attention is a secondary goal.
To start, I have been gathering advisers and counselors and building the campaign team. Zechariah Ong from MinorsVote.com; and Jessica and Warren Edstrom, co-founder of the Voices of America and Vice President of the Ohio School Board Leaders, are just a few of the advisers for the campaign.
What we need from any readers of this blog post are personal stories of how Common Core has affected you as a parent or student or educator. Please comment in the links to your story or please email me the story at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
We will soon be launching petitions, Youtube videos and podcasts, press releases, and writing letters to our politicians. Our resources are quite limited, so we are also seeking funding for this project, but with the technological innovations, we should be able to do most things without paying a cent.
We have already contacted a few school boards and waiting for their responses. We are building a list of those members that are running for re-election and whether they support Common Core or not.

Pray for us! This is probably the first time we ever campaigned in this magnitude. If you would like to donate to our cause, please visit this link.
Looking forward to working with all of you,
