Jindal criticized for vagueness on Common Core

BATON ROUGE - A nonpartisan organization that supports Louisiana's use of the Common Core education standards says Gov. Bobby Jindal has been too vague in his position about the toughened standards.

Jindal has described having "concerns" with Common Core and the associated testing, while also saying he supports high academic standards.

The Council for A Better Louisiana says it would be helpful to know specifically what the governor's concerns entail.

A statement released by CABL President Barry Erwin says Jindal has offered too little guidance to lawmakers grappling with whether to tweak the standards or scrap Common Core entirely.

Jindal refused again Thursday to be pinned down. He wouldn't say whether the state should shelve the Common Core or make modifications, saying he'll take a position when each proposal comes up for debate.
