    Adopting common core is a huge mistake. It is nothing more than a federal and corporate takeover of public education. Private schools are going to be forced into it as well as ACT and SAT tests are modeled on common core.

    Obama is all-in on this take over and Jindal seems to be as well.

    Jindal's superintendent of schools John White is an Arne Duncan clone.
