Dear @TheBlaze and @GlennBeck, I Have a Scott Walker Question for You

Last July, I went to The Blaze studios to be a panel member of We Will Not Conform, a live Common Core event shown in movie theaters across the country.

Multiple aspects of Common Core were discussed, including political and election implications. For many citizens, especially parents fighting Common Core, being squishy on the topic is a deal breaker.

I have a question for Mr. Beck….

We Will Not Conform Event PostMortem

I’m back from Dallas! The adrenaline that was pumping through me while I was participating in Glenn Beck’s We Will Not Conform has worn off and wow, am I wiped out! I met some amazing people and many other ‘mom warriors’ out there fighting Common Core.

Those participating included Michelle Malkin, David Barton, Matt Kibbe, Dana Loesch, Pat Gray, Stu Burguiere, Kyle Olson, Katheen Jasper, Shane Vander Hart, Heather Crossin, Emmett McGroarty, Heidi Huber, Josh Breechan, Jenni White, Dr. Terrance Moore, Dr. Jay Spencer, Brian Glicklich, Becky Gerritson, and Ellen Wheeler.

What a whirlwind night it was. The event had five panels giving advice and sharing their experiences with fighting Common Core. My panel was Messaging and public relations with Brian Glicklich, Becky Gerritson and Ellen Wheeler. It was really motivating and inspiring to see what they had been doing and what strategies we had that were working and which ones were not. We’ve got an action plan that contains the best of the best from the night. Keep reading! Continue reading

Lady Liberty 1885 Will Not Conform On July 22nd

Those who follow this blog regularly know I have been engaged in fighting and the effort to stop Common Core in North Carolina. I’ve been at this nearly two years now and we’ve got a set of bills floating around the legislature here. These bills have been conferenced on and look to be heading to the floor of both houses in the coming week or so before the current session ends. North Carolina’s legislature is close to returning a true education to its children and restoring sovereignty over education to our state.

I’ve done as much as I can to spotlight the struggle here in North Carolina and to have worked other activists in other states on our “Common” problem. Many people have been fighting right alongside me for this outcome. I think we might get a bit more of a spotlight on our fight as I will be taking their energy, determination and a little bit of what I learned from each of them with me when I fly to Dallas to take part in Glenn Beck’s Common Core call to action event:
We Will Not Conform

I hope you’ll join me on July 22nd as we hear from experts and grassroots activists, like me, about why we have to stop Common Core and how we can do it. Find out more, including finding a theater near you, at WeWillNotConform.com. Continue reading
