"I know no safe depository of the ultimate powers of the society but the people themselves; and if we think them not enlightened enough to exercise their control with a wholesome discretion, the remedy is not to take it from them, but to inform their discretion by education. This is the true corrective of abuses of constitutional power." - Thomas Jefferson 1820

"There is a growing technology of testing that permits us now to do in nanoseconds things that we shouldn't be doing at all." - Dr. Gerald Bracey author of Rotten Apples in Education

Twitter Bomb Education Time for Governor Mike Huckabee on Common Core

Tell Mike Huckabee what you think about his support of Common Core standards.  This is your chance to let Governor Huckabee know the FACTS  about Common Core, not the talking points from special interest groups.

This is a repost of an email I received:


We have seen over and over again that former Governor Mike Huckabee has been championing the Common Core Standards, see below.

We are going to do a project to get Mike Huckabee educated on what hundreds of thousands of parents, teachers and administrators think about Common Core. Huckabee has a national voice and is misleading parents and his circle of influence on this issue. We must stop him in his tracks by alerting him to how much this issue means to you.

We are going to use the “Twitter Bomb” tool  to make sure he gets the message of how YOU feel about this, not his crony political buddies like Jeb Bush. Please send to all of your contacts and please post on all of your Facebook pages.

Starting at 8 am pdt/ 11am edt June 20, 2013 and we are doing it for 72 hours leading up to his show on Saturday June 22, 2013, we are asking you to Tweet and put on Mike Huckabee’s  Facebook pages facts about Common Core .

We will be using three hashtags for this project, #educateHuckabee#stopcommoncore#CURENat

Below you will find all of the social media sources for Mike Huckabee:

Mike Huckabee For America(Facebook page): https://www.facebook.com/HuckabeeforAmerica?fref=ts

Mike Huckabee (Facebook page) –Politician: https://www.facebook.com/mikehuckabee?fref=ts

Huckabee Twitter Accounts: Find him on Twitter and Follow him so you can send him Tweets.



So for those new to Twitter here is an example of the kinds of Tweets we can do:

@GovMikeHuckabee Common Core gets rid of parental rights #educateHuckabee#stopcommoncore,#CURENat

@huckabeenews  http://catholicexchange.com/two-moms-vs-common-core/ #educate Huckabee#stopcommoncore#CURENat

I would use his “news” Twitter to show all of the news going against CCS.


Remember, give Huckabee the FACTS about Common Core.  Just the FACTS should stop the implementation of a grand theory not backed up by any research or data.  Ask him why he supports educational reform crafted by two private trade organizations.    Ask him if this educational reform reduces federal power/cost to local districts.  If it doesn't, then ask him why he supports Common Core?
