Many await decision on Common Core delay

BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - An answer to what kind of delay could occur with the new Common Core educational standards should be announced Wednesday.

Louisiana Superintendent of Education John White had requested the new standards be phased in more slowly.

The Board of Elementary and Secondary Education (BESE) chose to back the two-year delay.

A final decision is expected later in the day.
