A dispute between Gov. Bobby Jindal and the state's top education leaders over the use of tests tied to the Common Core standards has left testing plans stalled.
The upheaval began when Jindal suspended a contract that Education Superintendent John White intended to use to buy testing material that goes with Common Core.
But lawmakers and the Board of Elementary and Secondary Education have voted to maintain Common Core.
A special education board meeting didn't end the impasse. Jindal and White are supposed to sit down within two weeks for a meeting seeking compromise.
