Watch Glenn Beck discuss We Will Not Conform with Sean Hannity on Fox News. He is referring to the film as a “call to action” that will take place on July 22 in movie theaters across America. Beck said that through this film, he will be arming Americans with the knowledge to speak out against the Common Core education standards.
According to the official website, here is why YOU should go see the film:
Education is the Most Important Issue.Advertisement
We all want our children to be the best and brightest in the world, but a top-down, one-size-fits-all solution is not a solution at all. It’s no coincidence that the more the federal government has gotten involved in education, the worse things have become–so why would we tolerate more of it? As former Obama “Regulatory Czar” Cass Sunstein recently wrote about, studies have shown that governments can “greatly affect students’ thinking.” A recent study in China proved that “government planners were able to succeed in altering students’ views on fundamental questions about their nation.” If Common Core succeeds, the ability of an administration to influence curriculum at a national level will be unprecedented…and unstoppable.
Common Core Can Still be Stopped.
These standards are still being implemented across the country–but the window for action is small and closing quickly. The more parents, teachers and administrators understand this issue, the more strongly they oppose it. But education is the key. This event will give you the tools you need to go out into your community and make a real difference. Besides, victories against Common Core at all levels only help to pave the way to expand school choice opportunities and educate more people on why additional federal intervention into education is not the answer.
