Full disclosure, I’m an advocate of school choice. I’m also an advocate of no strings being attached to school choice initiatives. I pointed out how Florida’s private schools were being impacted by the Common Core. Now we are seeing this in Louisiana.
While again, I liked the Louisiana school voucher initiative, I expressed some concerns since the accountability system requires the same testing for voucher students as they would receive in public schools. It looks like my concerns are being realized as Louisiana shifts its testing standards to align with the Common Core.
This shouldn’t be a surprise as they recently shot down textbooks not aligned with the Common Core. Private schools take note.
