On Common Core, BESE is right to fight: Editorial

Gov. Bobby Jindal is so intent on shutting down testing for the new Common Core academic standards that he won’t let Superintendent John White or the state school board buy more than a few laptops at a time on their own. After the Board of Elementary and Secondary Education¬†voted Tuesday to hire outside lawyers to sort out the fight with the Jindal administration over the Common Core test, the governor’s office effectively cut off the money supply.

The administration has limited the board and Mr. White to $2,000 per contract without approval from the Division of Administration. The threshold had been $20,000.
