Lawsuit Against Common Core Filed By Gov. Bobby Jindal, Taking the Fight To Obama’s Doorstep


Jindal has to be one of my favorite politicians, and in my mind bumped himself up a few notches after I read this great story.

From the Article:

Jindal says the federal government is using coercive techniques to make states comply with Common Core standards.: He says the “Race To The Top” grant program is being manipulated to put states who don’t comply with the standards at risk to lose billions of federal grant money.: The Christian Science Monitor reports:

“Louisiana now finds itself trapped in a federal scheme to nationalize curriculum,” the lawsuit says. “What started as good state intentions has materialized into the federalization of education policy through federal economic incentives and duress.”

The Governor argues that the Common Core standards violate the Constitution’s state sovereignty clause and laws that prohibit “national control of education content,” CSM reports.

“The federal government has hijacked and destroyed the Common Core initiative,” Jindal said in a statement. “Common Core is the latest effort by big government disciples to strip away state rights and put Washington, D.C., in control of everything.”

Twelve other states have either dropped Common Core from their state curricula, are reviewing or revising the program, or never implemented the program at all. From U.S. News:

In his own party, Jindal does not enjoy total: support for his cause. Former governor and presidential candidate Mike Huckabee recently urged conservatives to stop fighting Common Core and instead work to “rebrand” and improve it.

Governor Jindal had publicly supported the program until last year, The: Washington Post reports.

Jindal is planning to file the suit on Wednesday in federal court in Baton Rouge.

Good on you, Jindal. I am so glad someone is getting a spine with Obama.

Common core is nothing more than an educational system that teaches communist ignorance,
Its math is to say the least confusing to the kids. It does not teach logical thinking.
Its history is nothing but a rewrite according the communist beliefs of what they believe should be American history. That have absolutely no basis in true historical fact.
Finally it does not teach English as a primary language in this country.
Thus when the kids are getting ready to attend college, they are not ready. They must take additional courses to prepare for college level studies.
It is a total failure in the field of educating the children from K -12.
It does not teach the basics that are needed to be a leader in the world. That is why our over all education system has been dropping in reference to the rest of the world. That and the communist controlled teacher`s unions…………..
