Common Core is a controversial topic. It's an education initiative that details what students in kindergarten through 12th grade should know at the end of each grade.
Louisiana has adopted the Common Core standards, but Governor Jindal now has second thoughts. In my editorial, I said he should not waiver on Common Core.

And they are wrapping this diabolical plan in the trappings of 'uniform educational standards'. They are not teaching standards, they are teaching their radical ideas and rewriting textbooks to agree with their view of history. "

So far, 44 states including Louisiana, Arkansas and Oklahoma have adopted Common Core. Texas has not. As always, thank you for your comments.
