Colorado, April 13, 2012: Parent Led Reform, a multi-issue organization that projects parental power into education reform, is hosting a rally via Twitter Tuesday April 16th at 10 am MST.  

The #Stopcommoncore Twitter Rally is a collaborative project in partnership with Truth In American
Education, and designed to share the research diligently collected by parents and citizens concerned
about the government’s push for national common standards in education.

“We oppose a lock-step approach to education that takes the focus away from the student and decisions away from the parent,” says Karin Piper, Executive Director of ParentLedReform.org. “Parent Led Reform is impressed with the voluminous and detailed research Truth in American Education has collected regarding the pitfalls of Common Core Standards, and honored to serve as a partner by moderating the rally via social media."
The #Stopcommoncore Twitter Rally features a panel of experts who are planning on answering
questions by the moderator, as well as taking live questions from Twitter users across the nation. The
panelists are Shane Vander Hart (Truth in American Education), James Shuls (Show-Me Institute), Joy Pullmann (Heartland Institute), Ben DeGrow (Independence Institute), Emmett McGroarty
(American Principles Project)."
