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.
