K12PlayGround.com combats propaganda spread by open social platforms like Facebook.
This is not a bug but a feature in their platforms. These monopolistic open social platforms have sold out America’s national interests, our own common wealth, and knowingly make their money from stoking racial prejudice, and dividing society.
Born digital, K12PlayGround.com relaunched in 2018 and is now 20 years old. We support Folklorists across America who combat propaganda with K12 classroom projects across the nation.
The Power of the KK12PlayGround.com platform is to support the commons, for the  public good.  We invite Folklorists and colleagues from the Library of Congress to lead K12 school and public civic projects.
We invite you to share your agency information, community, and individual achievements and concerns across the nation.
The K12PlayGround.com platform and our colleagues have power over the currency of democracy: authentic accurate information.
