Lawsuit filed against Gov. Jindal over Common Core

  // Monday, 21 July 2014 08:23 //

BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) — Parents and teachers who support the Common Core education standards are suing Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal, accusing him of illegally meddling in education policy.

The lawsuit filed Tuesday says the Republican governor and his Division of Administration "have sown chaos in the education system" and violated the Louisiana Constitution by issuing a series of executive orders aimed at undermining Common Core.

The standards are grade-by-grade benchmarks of what students should learn. More than 40 states have adopted them.

The lawsuit says Jindal's actions don't comply with constitutional provisions that give education policy-setting authority to the Legislature and implementation authority to a special board.

Jindal was a one-time Common Core supporter and is a potential presidential candidate in 2016.
