Minnesotans Against Common Core (MACC) and Northlanders Against Common Core (Duluth and Iron Range) is excited to sponsor Dr. Duke Pesta, English professor from UW-Oshkosh, presenting in both the Twin Cities and Duluth.
Here’s the information!

Common Core/Minnesota World’s Best Workforce Education Summit will feature Dr. Pesta in his, “The Case Against Common Core National Standards”. Dr. Pesta is nationally-known having spoken in nearly every state and before legislative hearings on the Common Core. There will be a question and answer session following the meeting.
Just following the Twin Cities’ event, MACC will hold short advocacy training sessions in a breakout style, explaining the connection of Common Core to our mandated statute on the workforce. We’ll have lots of handouts to help in local and state activism; email and letter templates, and the like. We’ll also quickly give a run down on good and bad legislation and MACC-inspired legislation.
Please send to all your friends around the state!!! We are grateful to have Dr. Pesta here and want to have a great crowd at the event.
