Top Louisiana Politicians Support Common Core… Except Gov. Jindal
The chorus of Louisiana politicians seeking election in Louisiana continues to support Common Core, leaving Gov. Bobby Jindal increasingly isolated in his calls for repeal.

Governor Jay Dardenne and Democratic gubernatorial hopeful state Rep. John Bel Edwards.
The Advocate notes, “That means three politicians who agree on little all back Common Core.” The newspaper goes on to say:

They all back the standards.”
