One of the few Common Core bills to emerge from the legislative session may be dead on arrival.
The measure, House Bill 953, would add an additional year to state plans to soften Louisiana’s accountability rules during the move to new academic standards.
The legislation won final approval in the Louisiana House on Sunday on a vote of 70-17. It earlier passed the Senate by a lopsided margin.
However, the plan may be vetoed by Gov. Bobby Jindal.
