BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - Louisiana Superintendent of Education John White has called a news conference at 10:30 a.m. to talk about the next steps related to the Common Core standards.

White will discuss the plan moving forward after a district court judge ruled Gov. Bobby Jindal's suspension of contracts the education department planned to use to buy testing material aligned with Common Core is causing harm to parents, teachers, administrators and students.

The contract suspension has stalled standardized testing plans for third-grade through eighth-grade students in Louisiana's public schools.

Parents, teachers and a charter school organization sued Jindal after he suspended the contracts, alleging he violated constitutional separations of authority over education policy. The state education board joined in suing Jindal.
