For the second day in a row, another lawsuit has been filed over Common Core in Louisiana. It's suing Governor Bobby Jindal, and was filed on behalf of parents and teachers who are in favor of the new education standards.
Supporters of Common Core said he's overstepping his legal authority and tampering with education policy.

Last month, Jindal suspended contracts associated with Common Core testing, as a way to get Common Core out of Louisiana.
However, Monday, state lawmakers who oppose the standards filed suit against the Board of Elementary and Secondary Education, known as BESE, and the state education department, saying they didn't properly enact Common Core.
The dispute leaves standardized testing in limbo, just a few weeks before school begins.
