FreedomWorks, Legislators, and Local Activists to Meet for Strategy Session to Defeat Common Core in West Virginia

WHAT: School board members, legislators, and community members will meet to discuss West Virginia’s Common Core state standards, which have been re-branded as “WV Next Generation Standards.”

FreedomWorks will join West Virginians Against Common Core and the Hampshire County Tea Party to host a Town Hall Forum on Common Core. Dr. Sandra Stotsky, an expert on educational standards and former member of the Common Core Validation Committee, will present information to the community and answer questions.

WHEN: Sunday, August 24, from 6–8:00 pm ET.

WHERE: Courtyard Marriott, 30 Shaner Drive, Bridgeport, WV 26330.

WHY: FreedomWorks activists are continuing the fight to stop Common Core in every state and to return education control to local communities and families. This event will bring together community leaders, educators, and concerned citizens across West Virginia to discuss the harms of a federal education takeover, and to discuss best practices to defeat the program.

ABOUT: FreedomWorks is a grassroots service center to a community of over 6.6 million activists who believe in individual liberty and constitutionally-limited government. For more information, please visit or contact Jackie Bodnar at
