Bobby Jindal talks Common Core

Aug 29, 2014 by

Gov. Bobby Jindal appeared on The Laura Ingraham Show to talk about his new lawsuit against President Barack Obama’s administration over the Common Core academic standards Wednesday (Aug. 27).

Early on in the show, Jindal took a swipe at prominent business groups like the U.S. Chamber of Commerce who have pushed for Common Core. The governor, who once supported the academic standards, publicly turned against them earlier this year.

“My take is the Republican Party should not be the big government party. We shouldn’t be the big business party either. There are some business interests on the other side of this debate,” said Jindal in an interview with Laura Ingraham, a well-known conservative political commentator.

In his lawsuit against the federal government, the governor alleges that the Obama administration is trying to impose a national Common Core curriculum on Louisiana through standardized testing and federal grant money.
