    Louisiana Republican Gov. Bobby Jindal blasted reports Tuesday that teachers are being reprimanded for speaking out against Common Core standards on social media.

    A teacher in Rapides Parish, in Alexandria, La., was “written up” for writing a negative post on Facebook about the controversial standards, according to Town Talk.

    “This is a hot national debate,” the teacher told the paper. “Why can’t I comment? I did not say a word about anything locally.”

    Jindal, who is suing the Obama administration for coercing states into adopting the standards, said silencing teachers is not helpful to the debate.

    “This is outrageous. Teachers are now being chastised for speaking out against Common Core,” he said. “Teachers have problems with Common Core, and we should be listening to them.”

    Because that is what liberals do. They hate debate and freedom of speech.

    Interesting that when W was in office, teachers went around openly complaining about No Child Left Behind, but under Obama, Common Core is not allowed to be criticized.
