Orlando, Florida Anti-Common Core Protest Rally

On Saturday, June 29th, a large crowd of parents, grandparents and well-informed citizens gathered in front of one of the entrances of the J W Marriott Orlando Grande Lakes Resort and Spa to protest the Common Core Standards.  The weekend long event taking place inside the Marriott was the National Common Core Convention, where training, morale boosting and pep talking were available to educators of all levels.  They did the exact same thing when it was Out-Come Based, Blueprint 2000, and Whole Language coming in back in the 1990’s.  Pictures really are sometimes worth a thousand words, so here they are.
