Press release from Americans for Prosperity – Tennessee; September 18, 2014:
NASHVILLE – A coalition of groups gathered together at Legislative Plaza to protest Common Core. An invitation-only education summit was hosted across the street during the protest. Seventy-four activists and parents showed up to urge lawmakers to repeal Common Core.
Americans for Prosperity provided support for the activists while debuting their tour bus. Currently the bus is wrapped with a Stop Common Core message; over the next three months AFP-TN will utilize the bus to promote free-market issues.
Andrew Ogles, AFP-TN state director stated: “As one of the most conservative states in the country Tennessee should take the lead in setting its own education standards, stopping the federal over-reach that is Common Core. Just like ObamaCare, Common Core is a Trojan horse for the federal government to take over state budgets.”
In addition, AFP-TN activists will be knocking on 4,000 doors across the state on Saturday to stop Common Core. Sign up at www.iamafp.com
