Bobby Jindal pulls Louisiana out of Common Core
Red State ^ | June 18th, 2014 | Streiff

Posted on 06/18/2014 12:11:19 PM PDT by xzins

In a presser now underway in Baton Rouge, Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal has announced that Louisiana is withdrawing from Common Core. Jindal was one of the first governors to sign onto Common Core but has since soured on the concept. Hopefully, more governors will follow Jindal and withdraw. Common Core, whatever its alleged virtues, is focused on training compliant workers not engaged citizens.

Teachers hate it: 24/7/365 paperwork and illogical evaluations

Principals hate it: 24/7/365 paperwork

Students hate it: seems like weekly standardized national testing...in fact, invasive screenings

He's certainly shown himself to be a leader, IMHO.

Good for him! Common Core is nothing but doctrination and dumbing down the youth of this country. Makes it easier to control the masses.

Congrats! Gov. The propaganda should be disbanded throughout the nation...(what’s left of it). Wary of DC attempting to ‘run’ anything. They have shown time and and again they are totally incapable. The proper wording should to ‘ruin everything’

Yes, I know that. But some “purists” in FR insists that to be “Natural Born” based on the “Original Meaning” of the Framers, BOTH your parents have to be American Citizens at the time of your birth.

The arguments go back and forth and there’s no resolution to this.

Jindal has pulled his support, but it's up to the legislature and school board to get rid of Common Core. He may be able to block the CC standardized test, but that may be all. Bobby Jindal announces plans to get Louisiana out of Common Core

Good for him in getting the ball rolling in Louisianna, but he's going to need more help in convincing the legislature to change direction. Parents can put pressure on them.

True Piyush Jindal was born in BR to parents who arrived about five months prior to his
birth to attend LSU. They weren’t US citizens so we’ll have that debate about elgibility
should he choose to run.

Days Apart, Two States Opt to Replace Common Core

By Andrew Ujifusa

The political turbulence surrounding the Common Core State Standards intensified in recent weeks as the governors of Oklahoma and South Carolina—less than a week apart—signed legislation requiring their states to adopt new standards replacing the common core, and legislators in North Carolina advanced bills to require that state to revise its already-adopted standards.

A majority of the governors are Republican. They can end common core if they really want to.

Mr WHITE JUST TOLD HIM “NO”. This should be very interesting. Jindal is now “on record” as opposed. Set up in place for throwing hat inring?

Yes, I know that. But some “purists” in FR insists that to be “Natural Born” based on the “Original Meaning” of the Framers, BOTH your parents have to be American Citizens at the time of your birth.

If that is the definition of "natural born", then none of the first 9 presidents of the US were natural born, since there was no USA for them to be citizens OF at the time of their birth.

Quite simply, anyone born in the US or its territories is considered a natural-born citizen. Where the question arises is in the case of a child born outside of the US to one or more parents that are US citizens. The child is a citizen of the US by virtue of his parents, but is he a "natural born" citizen? Some argue that because the child born overseas to an American parent would not be a citizen except for his parent, he is not a "natural born" citizen. On the other hand, a child born in the US is a citizen regardless of the citizenship of his parents - his US citizenship is not dependent upon his parents citizenship, and so he would be "natural born".

I'm not saying that is the correct answer, just pointing out some potential arguments. However, there is no question about whether or not Jindal is "natural born". Ted Cruz, there may be a question. But it is ultimately a political question and not a legal question, as we saw with Obama.

they can do almost anything they want to actually. they just don’’t want to. they didn’t want to defend their people against illegal invasions, they didn’t want to ensure legal citizen voting, they did not want to ensure frauds stayed off their ballots. They didn’t want to stand up to fed courts that usurp their constitutional authority.

And a few thousand other things.

Now get out there and elect more of them no matter what because you love Obama and hate America unless you do!

Tell the truth about Common Core and most teachers and principals hate it. After they’ve had to deal with for a bit, they despise it.

Washington CANNOT make a general plan that fits everyone, any more than Soviet Russia was able to predict the proper styles and shoes for women in their old command economy.

Education is local.

"Bobby Jindal will be the Republican nominee for Vice President in 2016"

The would disappoint a few malcontents around here who say he's "RINO scum". They backed RINO Vance McCallister in his special election win over conservative Republican State Senator Neil Riser, simply because Jindal endorsed Riser. Talk about morons.

Oh, I agree with you....but bureaucrats don’t care about the kids....follow the money. There are federal incentives attached to using Common Core standards/reporting.

The founder's grandfathered themselves in by the language of the qualifications for President in Article Two.

In addition, your definition of what constitutes a "natural born" citizen has been proven wrong many times on this forum. Natural born has been established as having two citizen parents and born under the jurisdiction of the United States. In this scenario, there is no other condition than being a natural born citizen. That is why the term "natural born" is used.

The only thing that’s been proven on this forum is that Congress has the power to decide what natural born means, they have never agreed with your interpretation, and by law right now (as it has been since 1790) children born overseas to a US citizen parent are citizens at birth and meet the constitutional eligibility criteria for the presidency.

It might be that some day they’ll agree with you. But, even George Washington and the first Congress ever in this country under this constitution did not agree with you.

Ted Cruz is eligible.

Jindal seems to be an excellent governor. Too bad he can’t serve another consecutive term as governor. States need great leaders. So important to help stop or at least slow down the madness happening in D.C.
