The Washington Post reported that Gov. Bobby Jindal said that Louisiana is leaving a group of states that have developed new curriculum and tests based on the Common Core State Standards.
The Post also reported that Louisiana education officials say the state won’t give up the standards.
Louisiana wouldn’t be the first to leave the Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers (PARCC) group, which still includes Maryland, Washington, D.C., and about 13 states.
Montgomery County Public Schools, which developed its Curriculum 2.0 based on Common Core, conducted a pilot of the new PARCC standardized test in its schools this spring.
