Bobby Jindal seeks court injunction to stop use of Common Core tests: UPDATED

  // Tuesday, 05 August 2014 07:29 //

In the latest salvo in the ongoing fight over Louisiana's use of the Common Core education standards, Gov. Bobby Jindal has amended his lawsuit and is now seeking a court injunction to immediately stop the state from using the tests tied to Common Core.

The governor's office said in a release that the injunction is needed "because of the imminent risk of irreparable harm created by the unlawful exercise of federal control of education in Louisiana.

"

The injunction would bar the state's Board of Elementary and Secondary Education from implementing any assessment program developed by the Partnership for the Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers, known as PARCC.

Louisiana students were set to take the PARCC test starting this upcoming school year, but educators have been in limbo since Jindal publicly began trying to get Louisiana out of the test this summer -- over the objections of state Superintendent John White and other state education officials.
