PearsonWelcome back to Pearson Is Everywhere!

Last time, we looked at Pearson’s spying on students on Social Media and how Colorado is trying to protect ‘student data privacy’ in Colorado — from groups like Pearson.

Today, we’re reminded by Truth In American Education that the bid-rigging lawsuit filed in New Mexico is still going on.

Truth In American Education reported:

The lawsuit that was filed in New Mexicoaccusing the state of bid-rigging when it chose Pearson as a test developer for PARCC still has life.

AP reports that it could halt PARCC in New Mexico:

A legal challenge by a Washington-based testing company may halt a controversial assessment exam in New Mexico that has sparked school walkouts and anger from parents and teachers.

A Santa Fe judge is scheduled to hear arguments Tuesday in an appeal by the American Institutes for Research. The company is fighting the state’s granting of a potentially multi-year contract for Common Core testing to Pearson.
