Leadership and Crisis in Education
In the fight over Common Core, Louisiana state government is
failing its citizens and the governor is chiefly responsible
Louisiana state government is failing its duty to provide leadership and accountability for public school education in the upcoming academic year.

This was a crisis of choice and the clearest responsibility for it lies with the governor.
