Jindal announces plan for Louisiana to back out of Common Core | CNN



Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal said Wednesday he plans to pull his state out of the Common Core academic standards, announcing an executive order aimed at blocking the testing program in the state.

At a news conference, Jindal said he's sent a letter requesting his state's withdrawal from the program to the Partnership of Assessments for College and Career Readiness (PARCC) - a conglomerate of states developing the standards for students in the subjects of English and math.
