BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -

A few parents met with Gov. Bobby Jindal at the Louisiana State Capitol on Thursday to let him know they're on his side when it comes to Common Core.

"Standards are not a problem; we have excellent standards," Dr. Anna Arthurs said. "In 2012, Louisiana was ranked by quality count survey as having the second highest standards in the nation. So, standards are not our problem. But, we're continuing this false argument, which means we're never going to fix the problem, will we?"

Earlier in the day, the Jindal administration announced there would not be any delays in the scoring for standardized tests over the summer. Those retests are for students who previously failed and will determine if the students advance to the next grade.

Jindal recently suspended the education department's testing contract to prevent Louisiana's use of the Common Core standards.
