The Advertiser reports that a Federal judge is allowing Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal’s Common Core lawsuit to proceed.
A federal judge refused Thursday to throw out Gov. Bobby Jindal’s lawsuit against President Barack Obama’s administration over the Common Core education standards.
U.S. District Judge Shelly Dick rejected Obama administration arguments that Jindal didn’t have the legal standing to bring the lawsuit and set a hearing date for the case on May 28.
Jindal sued the U.S. Department of Education in August, accusing it of manipulating $4.3 billion in federal grant money and policy waivers to illegally pressure states to adopt the English and math standards and associated testing.
On the heels of the decision in Missouri it will be interesting to see how well this particular strategy works.
