Gov. Bobby Jindal’s endorsement of a bill to scrap Common Core and let state lawmakers have the final say on education standards came on the same day that the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation released a video that included a pro-Common Core quote from Jindal.
His endorsement comes at 3:10 in the video.
Shannon Bates, a spokeswoman for Jindal, said Thursday that the statement cited was old, and chamber officials did not contact the Governor’s Office.
Jindal’s office registered support Wednesday for a proposal, House Bill 381, that would set up a commission to draft new academic goals and then submit them to the Legislature.
The governor also signaled his backing for a second measure, House Bill 558, that would ban the state from using the national test to measure what students know about the new standards in reading, writing and math.
