Auditor releases nonpartisan brief on Common Core
BATON ROUGE - Questions about the dispute over the Common Core education standards, or still wondering what the standards even are?
Legislative Auditor Daryl Purpera's office on Monday released a nonpartisan overview about the English and math standards used in Louisiana's public school classrooms.
The 30-page report describes development of the standards, gives a sample of the changed teaching and outlines other states' use of Common Core. The report also provides an overview of the Common Core lawsuits filed in Louisiana.
More than 40 states, including Louisiana, have adopted Common Core, which describes what students should know after completing each grade.
Gov. Bobby Jindal opposes the standards, saying the Obama administration has manipulated use of Common Core to try to control local education policy and curriculum.
