What spectacle can be more edifying or more seasonable, than that of Liberty & Learning, each leaning on each on the other for their mutual and surest support? ~ James Madison
Grassroots in Michigan will be bringing you information on education in Michigan and educational topics from grassroots activists and experts nationwide.
The message below is from activist Melanie Kurdys who is mobilizing interested citizens to help pass HB 4276 to stop Common Core in Michigan
Thank you for all you do, you are the heart and soul of a free Michigan.
Grassroots in Michigan
We have been busy meeting with Representatives mostly, some Senators. Looks like we will not try to get a companion bill going in the Senate. Still, contacting your senators, if you have not done so, will prepare them.
Find your Senator HERE
Your contacts have been helpful. Thank you.
We are now moved to the House Education Committee
Location: Room 307, House Office Building, Lansing, MI
Clerk Phone Number Ben Cook 517-373-2002
Date Wednesday, 3/20/2013
Time 10:30 AM
We are assembling a team of folks to testify. National experts are on our list. We are also inviting home schoolers. We especially need teachers and administrators from Michigan, so any you believe might testify should contact me.
If anyone can not physically attend the meeting, you can testify by emailing your testimony to the Committee Clerk at firstname.lastname@example.org. Tell the Clerk to enter your e-mail into public testimony.
Here are some resources I have assembled and have been sharing. Please don’t think you have to become an expert at every angle of Common Core. Pick the issue that most concerns you and express that passionately. They will get the message. On the other hand, if you have a specific concern, don’t hesitate to contact me.
