Bobby Jindal may walk away from $15 million for poor students over Common Core fears

Gov. Bobby Jindal will likely block Louisiana from applying for a $15 million federal preschool grant that could help poor children in Louisiana because of concerns the money is tied to the Common Core academic standards.  Jindal, Louisiana Education SuperintendentJohn White and federal officials have exchanged several letters over the past three days about whether the grant has links to Common Core — a set of math and English educational benchmarks used in over 40 states. The governor must apply for the money before the end of the day Tuesday (Oct. 14).
