Judge Todd Hernandez lifted Jindal's suspension of contracts the education department planned to use to buy testing material aligned with the multistate standards.
In his written ruling, Hernandez
said the Jindal
administration didn't produce any evidence to support the governor's claims that White and the Board of Elementary and Secondary Education, or BESE, violated state contracting law.
noted that fourth-grade students must pass a standardized test in order to be promoted to the next grade.
"The loss of time is irreparable.
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," Hernandez
wrote that they had shown they were likely to prevail in the trial.
