Columnist Walter Pierce says that Jindal's refusal to get involved - even though he supports Pastorek's agenda as state superintendent of education - calls the governor's leadership into question:

gifted Bobby Jindal who was given a mandate by voters? Can he do it? Can he
actually advance Louisiana, make it a better place to live, a place where our
children want to live? His predecessors — Republican and Democrat alike — have
come and gone with little effect on our bottom-dwelling status.
