Recently, we've taken to developing memes - pictures that represent a set of ideas - about Common Core. Sadly, many parents are either too busy or uninterested in reading about the real problems associated with Common Core on their own, but they might if a picture sparked their interest. I'm pasting a number of the memes below. If you would like to use them in an email or to print out and send to a legislator - whatever - please do so!
The letter below was penned in hope that Oklahoma County Republican clubs would adopt it to their own needs and forward it to our Governor. While our Governor reminds us often how conservative she is, she stands in opposition to - not only her own State Republicans - but the National Republican Committee as well on this issue.

SPEAKING ENGAGEMENTS: (for requests contact jenni@RestoreOkPublicEducation.com)
STOP IMPLEMENTING THE COMMON CORE STATE STANDARDS AND RETURN TO LOCAL CONTROL OF OKLAHOMA EDUCATION!
The Common Core State Standards present a takeover of public education by a small group of individuals. This takeover will change the way that teachers teach, parents interact with their schools due to loss of local control, and present students with a narrow range of studies and increased standardized testing. Oklahomans must maintain local control over public education, therefore, we reject the Common Core State Standards.
