Common Ground Project Initiated

June 2000

On Saturday June 17, 2000 the Ventura County Star did a feature article on Wayne Jacobsen's efforts to build common ground through BridgeBuilders.

Also, Wayne is coordinating free common ground workshops for numerous county offices of education throughout the state. Funding for The Common Ground project has been provided by a private foundation. Those cooperating in this venture include:

  • BridgeBuilders
  • California 3 R's Project
  • La Verne University's School of Educational Management
  • Ventura County Superintendent of Schools Office

If you know a county that would be interested in hosting one of these free presentations, you can forward that information and request that they contact my office.


Worldviews Education Watch (WEW) is a free service provided by BridgeBuilders offering the latest information on religious liberty and public education drawn from court cases, policies and current events. It will also share examples of successful partnerships and cooperation between public schools and faith communities.
