Jindal Loses Appeal on Common Core Lawsuit in State Court

A Louisiana appeals court Wednesday upheld a judge’s ruling that barred Gov. Bobby Jindal from suspending testing contracts tied to Louisiana’s use of the Common Core education standards.

A three-judge panel of the 1st Circuit Court of Appeal said Jindal’s attempt to halt the testing contracts was an “unconstitutional interference” with the education department and the state Board of Elementary and Secondary Education, known as BESE.
