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!

MACC Hits 2400!!!

MACC Hits 2400!!!    YOU’VE done it!!!

THANKS to all members for raising awareness in Minnesota of the entire reform system that is the Common Core / College and Career Ready Standards. Just as important, parents, teachers and school board members need to know that they do have a voice.    Let’s use those voices!!!  We so appreciate those who have set up venues for our speakers and we will continue to travel around the state informing our fellow citizens.   Thank you!

We encourage everyone to attend your local school district school board meetings, starting this summer. Take notes and discuss the numerous changes coming into our schools with your neighbors and other parents.   Set up a coffee appointment with one of the school board members.  You’d be surprised how little they know.  Bring some friends to an event in your area. Share our posts on your own personal timeline or on Twitter or Google.   Talk to the parents in the PTA.  (The National PTA was paid off by the Gates Foundation.)  Tell them about our website, state page, state group and county groups.

Let’s keep raising awareness, Minnesota!

Important Upcoming MACC Events


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 their 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.

As we begin to work more at the local level,  be sure to attend if you are new to this issue .  Even more importantly, if you could attend to be helpful to the many parents and citizens who are looking to speak with someone after the presentation.  As speakers, we are generally swamped.  Look forward to seeing you!!!
