BATONROUGE, La. -- On a day Gov. Bobby Jindal was criticized for not taking a detailed position on Common Core, the governor said he would make his thoughts known as he worked through the issues with individual sponsors of bills that would revamp the standards for public school students to achieve.
'We will look at those bills (and that's when) we will offer our detailed thoughts,' Jindal said Thursday while answering press questions in his office. 'We're having good constructive conservations with them, but it's early ... In general we think we should have strong standards as a state. We don't think we should be going backwards on standards.'
