Washington Post Calls Out Gov. Jindal’s ‘Misguided Lawsuit’
The Washington Post Editorial Board took Gov. Jindal (R-La.) to task for his misguided lawsuit against Common Core in his own state. Before filing this lawsuit, Gov.

Jindal raised no concerns as he strengthened his state’s commitment to the common state standards.
The editorial calls out Jindal and Oklahoma’s Governor, Mary Fallin, for their outrageous behavior: “What’s really outrageous is that children are being educationally shortchanged by standards that don’t adequately prepare them for college or careers while officials who should know better grandstand and go to court in defense of that injustice.”
