As Gov. Bobby Jindal and his administration flail about for a way to stop Common Core testing, Louisiana families and schools are being thrown into chaos. The Jindal administration suspended the Department of Education’s standardized testing contract last week in an effort to prevent schools Superintendent John White from buying new test questions aligned to the Common Core State Standards.
That led Mr. White Wednesday to warn school systems not to send summer LEAP test results to the department’s testing company for scoring. That would have put students in limbo who are hoping to pass the high-stakes test and be promoted.
