Leger Supports Lawsuit Against Jindal on Common Core

“In a clear act of executive overreach, Governor Jindal’s attempt to abandon Common Core has placed politics ahead of our children and the future of our state. We cannot and will not stand for it. The lawsuit filed by parents against the governor sends the message that the people of our state will not allow misguided politics to choke off the promise of a better Louisiana. The lawsuit brings to light the real issues on which we should be focusing, following the law so that we can meet the needs of students, parents, and teachers. Again and again their interests have taken a back seat to political ambition and been held hostage by a small but vocal minority. I commend the parents across the state who took bold action today to do what is right and improve our education system. I will continue standing with them to help ensure that their cause succeeds.”
