Jindal Administration on Common Core Court Ruling: The Judge is Wrong
BATON ROUGE, LA -- Governor Bobby Jindal’s Chief of Staff Kyle Plotkin issued the following statement today on the Common Core court ruling:
"We think this judge is wrong on the facts and the law. Hopefully, he will reconsider this preliminary ruling at the full trial. In the meantime, we will seek a stay of this ruling and an expedited writ to appeal to the First Circuit.
We want to make sure every other agency head in state government knows this judge is wrong. It’s not open season on breaking the procurement law.
If this judge’s ruling stands, it would cause chaos in state government and bring us back to the old days in Louisiana when it was ok to give no-bid contracts to your friends.
The judge took the arguments from Common Core proponents hook, line and sinker. The Superintendent and BESE President are creating hysteria about one test that is several months away.
They say this is just about standards, and not curriculum. But how could it create chaos months out before a test if it’s just about standards? What the proponents of Common Core have proved in this case is that Common Core is about controlling curriculum."
