It’s time to CALL all our Education Committee Chairs and voice our dissatisfaction with Common Core and the Race to the Top and No Child Left Behind Waiver Grants.

The bills that MACC and Rep. Jim Abeler are authoring must be heard and/or picked up by these Chairs.  We have a Parental Bill of Rights, Local Control of Independent School Districts, two bills that block of childrens’ data from leaving the state and a firewall bill to block further adoption into the Common Core system.

There are two Senate Education Committees and two House Education Committees.  We need everyone to get in touch with all four chairs of these committees.  You may call the chair directly or call their legislative assistant.  Either way, we need many, many calls in the next week to help move legislation forward.  Tell them, “I want legislation against the Common Core Standards, the data collection, a Parental Bill of Rights to strengthen a parents voice, renewed Local Control of school districts and stop any further intrusion of Common Core into Minnesota”.

As always, thank you for standing for the children and families of Minnesota!  THEY are our greatest resource!
