Quote of the Week: Sen. David Vitter 

  "After listening to literally thousands of parents, teachers, and others ... I don't believe that we can achieve that Louisiana control, buy-in and success I'm committed to if we stay in Common Core. ... Common Core is controlled by national groups and interests outside Louisiana. And many Louisianans legitimately fear that it will become a federal government takeover of education under President [Barack] Obama and his far-left allies." — Sen. David Vitter, reversing his support for the national Common Core State Standards. Many but not all GOP politicians, including Gov. Bobby Jindal, dropped their support of Common Core after it became unpopular with their most conservative Republican constituents. Vitter had long supported Common Core — until last week. The standards are still supported by many Louisiana business organizations and most state lawmakers.
