WASHINGTON — Governor Bobby Jindal sought to raise his political profile as a leader of decentralized school reform Monday. Hopscotching around the nation’s capital, the Louisiana Republican drew an implicit contrast with his education policies to those of Jeb Bush, another likely GOP presidential candidate.
“It boils down to this question: Do you want moms—and essentially it’s moms who make this decision—to make these decisions? Or do you think bureaucrats in D.C. or Baton Rouge know best?” Jindal said at a daylong forum that Republican Sen. Tim Scott of South Carolina hosted at the Hart Senate Office Building.
Earlier in the day, Jindal attacked the education standards movement known as Common Core. “If I were to run, it would be not only on this issue, and I’m all for getting rid of Common Core, but for block grants to the states and tying funding to students,” Jindal said at a breakfast briefing The Christian Science Monitor hosted Monday morning.
