What an amazing 3 days with the WV Against Common Core(WVACC) crew & Dr. Sandra Stotsky! We had great turnout on Sunday in Bridgeport, WV. FreedomWorks joined West Virginians Against Common Core to host a town hall forum on Common Core.
The meeting was designed to educate the public and legislators, who were in Bridgeport for Interim’s, on Common Core in West Virignia and persuade legislators to take a stand. There were almost 200 people in attendance, including over 30 West Virginia legislators and candidates. "We were expecting 65 people, had the room set up for just over 80, we ended up with almost 200 people, with over 60 more watching the livestream." Dr. Sandra Stotsky, an expert on educational standards and former member of the Common Core Validation Committee, presented information and answered questions.
Monday was a full day of Dr. Stotsky and WVACC members meeting with legislators (on both sides of the isle) and doing interviews with radio hosts and other media from across the state.
Tuesday we traveled to Morgantown where Dr. Stotsky was able to sit down with WVU President, Dr. Gee and have an open dialog about common core and how it will affect kids coming into WVU and all colleges.
Having someone with Dr. Stotsky’s background and credentials come to our area really helped spark more interest in the common core agenda. We are seeing more and more people realize how bad it really is and they are wanting to know what they can do to help stop it.
WVACC is presently working on a multi-tiered action plan that will work best for West Virginia.
