With 2600, MACC Ready to Exercise Some Muscle

Your Kids

What is more precious in life than our very own, dearly beloved children?  August 12th, the Minnesota primary elections rise up before us.  Moms, dads, grandparents and citizens have become single-issue voters on the Common Core issue.  It’s time to stand behind those candidates who will help repeal the Common Core Standards / College and Career Ready Standards / World’s Best Workforce in Minnesota.

Here’s our survey of all in-state representatives, US senate and house and governor.

MACC Constituent Bulletin

Be sure to vote anti-Common Core candidates, Tuesday, August 12th!!

MACC Constituent Survey Bulletin

MACC is pleased to present its first Constituent Survey Bulletin.

Common Core has become a serious hot-button topic among parents, grandparents and citizens.   As citizens, we organized this survey in an attempt to understand a candidates’ position and knowledge of Common Core in Minnesota.   Some candidates have not been forthcoming on their position.  This bulletin covers all primary candidates for next week’s primary election on August 12th.  33% of candidates responded. Candidates were e-mailed twice and called at least twice.

We encourage everyone to read the links and survey questions first.  Then scroll down to the candidate responses.  MACC has responded first at the beginning.  You may compare our responses to the candidates.

Thank you, primary candidates, for your responses to THE most important matter to our families, schools and communities!

Nisswa Tonight! Make a Note…

MAKE A NOTE…

It may be summer, but with Common Core full implementation complete this school year, Minnesotans Against Common Core (MACC) is not slowing down at all!!!  We have a number of important events coming up!

We ask everyone to attend the closest event to your area and school district. Community leaders such as city council, county commissioners, police and firefighters, mayors, business leaders are individuals we want to inform. Many have been invited and are accepting invitations. State legislators and candidates are also encouraged to attend. Please note that all superintendents and school board members are always invited to our presentations. As non-partisans, we are attempting to engage the full spectrum of political parties.

MACC has now started LOCAL SCHOOL DISTRICT GROUPS!  Join your school district group and offer your help.  Come to learn and connect with others from your area.  We look forward to meeting you!!!

We Will Not Conform Movie – July 22nd

Glenn Beck’s, We Will Not Conform is playing in movie theaters on Tuesday, July 22nd at 7:00pm! Theaters are asking viewers to arrive 30 minutes early. Tickets may be purchased online (posted in the article below). Glenn Beck has designed this event to be interactive — bring your phones. Our understanding is that we will be discussing take action items and determining next step in taking our schools back.. Some of our theaters will offer an after-the-movie social to connect with others. MACC will have representatives of our Board at each of the locations handing out flyers, sharing our petition and sign ups to get involved at the local level..

Minnesotans Against Common Core’s mission is to inform the people of Minnesota about Common Core and related initiatives (College & Career Ready Standards and the Minnesota World’s Best Workforce). We oppose any and all governmental or corporate take-over of our schools, which includes Common Core Standards, No Child Left Behind Waiver, Race to the Top – Early Learning Challenge as well as the corporate privatization or “choice” movement. Choice and Charters remove duly elected school boards and always align with the Common Core reform.

Please get engaged on this issue and be a part of the conversation!
