…And there is Hope!

Awhile back the mother of a 13 year old girl sent Truth in American Education a washington applelogo her daughter, Hope, designed.  Since providing the initial design it has been put into a few other forms.  In addition, Hope, who created the design, has this to say about why:

I created the design because I know my mom feels strongly against common core. She was looking for an online design that she could put on a t-shirt to inform people, but she couldn’t find any free images. So I decided to draw a picture for her that she could use for free.

Hope also tells how she created the logo design.

I have a school issued iPad so I used drawing art apps- Linebrush and Sketchbook Pro, to make the image.

While it sounds like Hope created the design, her younger brother helped generate a slogan that prompted a mental image.

When my brother told me his idea for the slogan, Common Core- One Rotten Apple, I immediately envisioned a rotten apple core, core being a symbol for common core. I decided to include a worm because worms like rotten apples, but since common core is so bad, the worm is actually made sick by the apple.

This is a fine example of real world application of available technology.  In addition to creating an outstanding logo, Hope has expressed concerns about the Common Core State Standards.

I am worried about class being boring for advanced students because of the curriculum being the same for everyone.

Hope, we thank you for giving us hope with your logo.
