There are many key educational advocates/activists/authors with a presence on Facebook and/or elsewhere. I am working to unite them in the newly formed Yahoo Group Stop National Standards, my hope being that many key education activists will join under one umbrella for more impact, and through that channel become connected and can inform their following. Authors who have joined so far: Susan Ohanian, Joanne Yatvin, Alfie Kohn, Angela Engel, Victoria M. Young,Horace (Rog) Lucido. Others: Jesse Turner, Anthony Cody, Don Perl and Laura Manuel of the Coalition for better Education. If you are a key activist or know of others, please stop by my Facebook page, join, and share the link. Thanks! http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=111772538876554&v=info
