Jindal sides with unions on Common Core fight

Now Jindal is generally aligned with those same teacher unions that he repeatedly blasted in 2012 and is on the opposite side from his previous allies, his state superintendent of education and even his former chief of staff.

Why the dramatic shift in alliances?
