MACC Travels to Jackson County!

MACC Travels to Jackson County!
This week we traveled over to Lakefield, in the southwest corner of Minnesota.  It’s an absolutely beautiful area!  Our team had opportunity to meet many of the great people living in that town!
Many thanks to Alison Stump and Shelly Gusten for heading up this event on June 18th .  After our presentation, there were many thoughtful questions (obviously many had researched well before we arrived) about the future for our children and nation.
We had a great turn-out of moms, dads and grandparents.  Also in attendance were teachers, city councilmen, county commissioners, two superintendents, principals, school board members and a legislator.  We really appreciated those teachers who spoke up and validated MACC’s concerns with Common Core and its synonymous rebrands: College and Career Ready Standards and the Minnesota World’s Best Workforce.
