FreedomWorks Slams Louisiana Common Core Decision as Judicial Activism

Washington, DC- Following news that a Louisiana District judge overruled Governor Jindal’s attempt to overturn Common Core for reasons of "irreparable harm" to those who have been preparing for the changes, FreedomWorks President Matt Kibbe released the following statement:

FreedomWorks President Matt Kibbe:

"This ruling makes about as much sense as a Common Core math problem. The judge established no legal basis to rule that Governor Jindal doesn’t have the authority to overturn Common Core. Instead, he chose to save a failed program because he liked the policy. It’s judicial activism at the expense of our kids, and it’s appalling."
