On July 22nd – We Will Not Conform!

Screen Shot 2014-05-29 at 9.27.00 AM

There are only a few opportunities in life to make a real difference by standing up for what you believe in.

The next one is coming on July 22! Details on how to get tickets!

Glenn Beck and Fathom Events invite you to your local movie theatre to experience a live national night of action against Common Core. WE WILL NOT CONFORM is a chance for anyone who’s tired of sitting idly by as the federal government continues its takeover of our schools to come together and do something about it.

WE WILL NOT CONFORM isn’t a typical show, it’s an interactive experience where theatregoers will work with experts like Michelle Malkin, David Barton and others in pursuit of real, tangible strategies to wake up our friends and neighbors and make our voices heard. This isn’t an evening about observing, it’s a chance to learn, share and engage with people as frustrated and motivated as you are. By the end of the night, the brainpower, experience, and passion of thousands of people from around the country will be captured in a comprehensive, unified plan of action distributed to all participants.

To Common Core supporters who thought they would win through silence, this night will be a very loud wake-up call. If you are sick of the endless rhetoric, futile debates, and useless advice about changing the system at the ballot box, then WE WILL NOT CONFORM is the event you’ve been waiting for.

Why You Should Be There

  • Education is the Most Important Issue.

    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.

  • Meet Hundreds of Like-Minded People in Your Area.

    Those who come to theaters on July 22 will be very much like you: people who are concerned about what Common Core means for  our kids and our future. By joining us that night you will not only be showing your support, you’ll also be making lasting connections with those who live in your area and are willing to help.

    Common Core is COMMUNIST indoctrination being used on our children.

    That is the only time I go to the movies when Glenn is having these types of speacials other then when I went to see Passion of the Christ.Look forward to it.

    What a letdown… no big summer event this year?

  • Anonymous

    I do like live events too but in this case by showing up we will support a good cause.

  • Tim O’hare

    I am a conservative Republican who is in favor of the Common Core. A child graduating from a High School in Alabama should receive an education equal to one from Massachusetts or New York or Colorado. The discrepancy in knowledge should be extinct by now.

  • Dorothy Scarborough Vining

    If it was just a matter of common standards then I would be for that too. As a teacher for 14 years I understand what you are saying. However, if you fully read all that common core is doing from tracking students to dumbing down kids then you would not be for this at all.

  • chip griffin

    we have no other choice…just like when hitler did it, he had the military to help as does obama. glen’s refusal to even look at the facts was his first and final mistake. he had a platform to help make real change come about, but he refused to even look. the family is dead anyway so it does not matter. it is over. no family = no future…

  • Snorri

    Parents and grandparents have an obligation to instill into children, their relations and even others, the desire, the wonder and the need for continual knowledge and learning. Local libraries are as yet still free of overt federal and state government controls / censorship. Adults can set the example by regular library use. Note: Survey DVDs are available with text books from The Teaching Company. Most are often on sale at reasonable prices. The only investment is time and interest from both adult and child. Finally, every home should have a collection of books on science, history, literature and art. One well chosen set of books on each subject is a good start. E.G.: Shelby Foote’s trilogy on the American Civil War; Alex Filippenko’s DVD set and text book on the Universe, “Civilization” by Kenneth Clark, “The Ascent of Man” by Jaocb Bronowski, note: the later two are PBS series also.

  • AlexisJaime

    It isn’t communist, it is statist. They aren’t the same thing.

  • Glenn Coughlin

    I never have and never will listen to an Glenn Beck when it comes to education.
    He is a hypocrite.
    He supports Charter Schools, which are public schools, but bashes other public schools.
    He attacks colleges and universities on a weekly basis, then cries about critics who rightfully mock his graduation speeches and fake degrees from Liberty.
    The fact is, Glenn Beck was too stupid, selfish and high to finish school.
    He chooses to home school his own kids behind his gated castle now, but let us not forget the abandoned children from his first marriage.
    Now he is fighting tooth and nail against trying to close the education gap with common core.
    Not a surprise. Glenn can’t profit from the common core. Glenn can’t fill his ego like Liberty, so Glenn attacks.

    I suppose you could say that, but you apparently don’t know what they are teaching our kids;
    this is not an attempt to standardize curricula (you swallowed the
    bait) — it is socialist indoctrination of our kids, and
    misrepresentation of our nation’s history and founding principles.

  • Paper Boy

    Of course, do not believe the assertions proposed by Glenn Beck on public education. However many people are still trying to determine why the United States ranks 17th in education achievement among the most developed nations of the world. But don’t worry, the Federal Government is going to throw more of your money at public education that will not improve education.

  • Paper Boy

    If knowledge is power, then why can’t scientists explain how gravity works. Of course they know the rules and laws of gravity, but why it exists, there is no explanation. Which means faith is more powerful than gravity.

  • Paper Boy

    It really does not matter where in the United States children get a public education. Most of them will still not be able to explain the Magna Carta.

  • Glenn Coughlin

    Maybe if the Republican party would stop cutting federal and state spending US children could improve.

  • Kevin R

    Glenn Coughlin, you are not being completely honest in your assertions. Charter Schools receive public funds BUT operate independently and are not required to follow the regulations which have pushed the US education level down.
    The government, both federal and state, has thrown billions of dollars at education over the years and all it has succeeded in doing is bringing US education to a lower level.
    The colleges that are criticized fail to teach the correct and accurate history, Constitution, and far too often attempt to indoctrinate students with the majority of professors being liberal progressive.
    Common Core does not close any education gap (though it could be closed more if parents took more interest in their children and the schools would work with accountability of teachers). Common Core is a way to gain power and control.

  • Kevin R

    It is not all about Republican or Democrat as most are the same today. You seem only concerned with the Republican party yet fail to hold the Democrats accountable.
    Billions of dollars have been thrown as education and it is still failing, perhaps what they are doing is wrong and it has already wasted far too much money.

  • Kevin R

    You believe in government control and indoctrination? Strange beliefs for a conservative.
    After the billions of dollars thrown at education over the years, it has not helped. Perhaps it is the teachers and schools not being held accountable, perhaps it is the administrators with little training and knowledge of education that put more money toward administrative employees and not the actual teachers, and perhaps it is the progressive control over education that has the discrepancy in knowledge.

  • Kevin R

    They could not tell you the Constitution either.
    Britain had a survey a few years ago that showed most elementary school aged children thought Hitler was the leader of Britain who led Britain to victory in WW2. So much for a good education.

  • Tonia McBride

    I don’t. I believe each state, each district, each school should strive to give each student the best education possible. No one is hiding information from kids (or educators) in Alabama. By your logic, children in districts where kids come to school prepared and who’s parents expect a lot from them shouldn’t be allowed to achieve more than kids who don’t. I’m all for minimum graduation requirements, but the only way to equalize outcomes is to drag down the exceptional and that’s a losing proposition.

  • Heidi Campbell

    No, it is a bipartisan creation. Doing a little research would be helpful.

  • Paper Boy

    Glenn, if you believe money will solve subpar education performance, then you likely believe money will eradicate poverty.

  • Paper Boy

    Likely that is probably a valid survey, and if so, Britain is seriously contaminated by progressive socialist liberals. However as long as they get their afternoon tea and crumpets, everything is good in the hood, so to speak.

  • Lancey

    They simply cannot implement a school program without the parents consent – period. Otherwise the UN as well as most of the European and British countries will break off diplomatic relations with the US for violating treaties about “parental rights” and becoming an outlaw nation!

  • Anonymous

    I will only conform to the directives of our leader Glenn Beck. He said it, I believe, and that’s the end of that.

  • Raz Matazz

    Those who seize the opportunities afforded by liberty also have a moral obligation to address directly resulting negative consequences.

    Why are you on his page??? You must like something about him while ranting on and on airing his laundry.. Stalker maybe…

  • Glenn Coughlin

    Brilliant and intelligent statement.
    You were trained well.
    When beaten, attack the opposition with personal, b.s. attacks to try and save face.

  • GLK

    Why does it matter to you? Personally I am a registered Independent. So your assumption that anyone against CC must be GOP is dead wrong. Actually CC was initiated by the State Board of Governors while under Republican leadership. However, SBG leadership automatically flip flops every two years from Dem to Republican. But it was the Obama administration that lapped it up and created legislation to arm twist all schools by making CC’s adoption mandatory to their Federal funding. That said, it shouldn’t matter to you or anyone else which political party is more at fault. What should matter are the children particularly the poor who deal with enough external pressures without adding this nightmare.

  • GLK

    You haven’t done your homework.

    Common core communist takeover of our children to lead US into a socialist state of slavery to the government!husseinObama was raised on fascist by communist of socialism in the Islamist country by the brotherhood and idolizes Mao

  • Carol Cantell Moorby

    I’ve been studying the common core and want to tell everyone it is a liberal secular humanistic atheistic demonic doctrine of socialists and communists. It is,NOT an educational system at all but a way to,dumb down and brain wash our children and grand children. I have seen examples of it and am horrified!!!!! It is subliminally telling our kids .not to trust anyone but the government…that the government should be in control of every thing. One assignment was for the students to remove two amendments from the constitution that they disagreed with and re-write two more of their own thoughts. Mind control at it’s best. This is an evil agenda which must be stopped…Most teachers don’t want it either. I have watched several teachers testify on c-span………Most do,NOT support CC either. Do your home work……..Say NO to common core!!!!

    How do I get our local theater to show this movie?

  • Cindee

    Propaganda is difficult to recognize for those who find it easy to believe everything they hear! Just ask our Colorado State Board of Education: upon further investigation, they learned that the assessments that accompany these standards take our students to inferior levels and voted to withdraw Colorado from the new tests. I only hope the Colorado legislators will follow the advice the Colorado State Board of Education who voted to withdraw Colorado from the assessments driven by Common Core. Although this was sold as a solution to our nation’s educational problems, truth has been revealed and exposes the significant indoctrination that accompanies these inferior standards.

  • Cindee

    Common Core has got to go–Colorado wake up, it is almost too late!

  • Cindee

    One would think parental rights trump everything: however, sadly, in today’s world they do not. Parents who choose to withdraw their students from the new Common Core assessments and mandates impose a huge penalty on their child’s school. This intimidates parents from exercising their rights. Sad, but true! It is time for parents, business leaders, politicians, and educators to stand up and speak their protest with “one voice.” It truly is the only way this revolutionary machine can be stopped!

    Common Core has many goals, but certainly one of them seems to be getting children to switch loyalty from family to “the state”. Another seems to be convincing children that the Constitution is a suggestion, and needs to be changed. Still another seems aimed at convincing children that they, as individuals, don’t matter…only the “common good” matters. Parents everywhere, and educators, need to push this socialist engineering program back to where it came from…hell.
