BATONROUGE, La. -- Gov. Bobby Jindal said Monday that a gubernatorial order for the state to drop controversial Common Core tests is a 'very viable option' if state lawmakers fail to act.
Jindal made the comment in response to a letter from eight House members who said the governor can opt the state out of the exams and should do that.
The testing consortium is the Partnership for the Assessment of Readiness for College and Career.
