Judge removes Jindalís Common Core ban
Washington Times ^ | 08/20/2014 | Kellan Howell

Posted on 08/21/2014 7:12:24 AM PDT by GIdget2004

A Louisiana district judge removed Republican Gov. Bobby Jindal’s executive order banning Common Core testing on Tuesday.

Mr. Jindal has been fighting an uphill battle since June with the state’s board of education to combat Louisiana’s participation in PARCC, a collective of states working together to develop standardizes testing based on Common Core.

In a written opinion, Judge Todd Hernandez, said the injunction on testing that was granted at Mr. Jindal’s request caused anxiety within the school system.

“The evidence is clear that this state of the unknown has caused anxiety and other harm to the parents, teachers, administrators and students in Louisiana,” he wrote. “With each passing day teachers and parents lose time preparing students for high stake testing, and there is a lot riding on the student’s successful performance on these tests.”

FUTF

PROVE that the parents have "anxiety" over the removal of Commmie Core from the public schools.

“we need to start finding ways to legally remove judges”

This is an elected circuit judge. There’s an easy way to legally remove him later this year, if that’s what the voters want.

Is this right?

Can a judge override a governor making an executive decision of this kind? Really?

I thought states had the decision to make, whether to participate in common core or not.

Apparently states do NOT have the right to opt out of common core.

Who knew?

LOL.

Good luck with that, robed one. Last I looked, you were not the chief executive of the state.

Look for this lawless ruling to be overturned.

More, from your linked article....

Mr. Jindal’s chief of staff, Kyle Plotkin, issued a statement condemning the decision.

“We think this judge is wrong on the facts and the law. Hopefully, he will reconsider this preliminary ruling at the full trial. In the meantime, we will seek a stay of this ruling and an expedited writ to appeal to the First Circuit,” Mr. Plotkin said.

He expressed skepticism over the judge’s argument that the injunction caused chaos.

“But how could it create chaos months out before a test if it’s just about standards?” Me. Plotkin asked. “What the proponents of Common Core have proved in this case is that Common Core is about controlling curriculum.”

The Obama administration encouraged states such as Louisiana to join PARCC with grants offered through the Race to the Top program.

Several states have already dropped Common Core this year, including Indiana, South Carolina and Oklahoma.

So the judge is admitting he has no legal grounds for his unconstitutionally activist ways.

Shameful.
