Jindal Attacks Pro-Common Core Ads


On March 10th, Buzzfeed reported on a phone interview they conducted with Lousiana Gov. Bobby Jindal:

“I’ve heard the ads,” Jindal told BuzzFeed News in a phone interview from Iowa. “They can run all the ads they want telling us why they should have control of education… and that parents aren’t smart enough to know what’s best for their kids. They can do that. But I wouldn’t bet against the parents.”

He added, “Clearly, the folks that are for Common Core have a lot of money. Good for them. I still put my money on the moms and dads.”

He went on, telling Buzzfeed:

“If voters want to vote for someone who’s pro-Common Core, they’re going to have an opportunity to do that in this election,” Jindal said, implicitly referring to Bush, who is the only one in the GOP field who supports the standards.
