Education matters and Governor Bobby Jindal loses another court battle over Common Core.

Jindal suspended the contracts on testing materials earlier this year. Tuesday a Baton Rouge judge lifted that suspension.

State superintendent of education John White released a statement about the court ruling:

"Today's ruling allows teachers and students to continue raising expectations in Louisiana. It enables our state to set its aspirations high and to compete with states across the country. Our students are just as smart and capable as any in America. We've been working for four years to teach them to the highest standards anywhere. Today's ruling continues that progress. In a letter sent this evening, I have communicated to Commissioner Kristy Nichols that our state's schools will continue their five-year transition to higher expectations and have asked the Administration's cooperation in that process."
