Parents express frustration over Louisiana fight on Common Core

Parents express frustration over Louisiana fight on Common Core

From the desk of Matt Williams: Coming up this morning

The Salvation Army is helping kids get ready to go back to school. Gerron Jordan will talk to organizers about what they're doing to get the little ones prepared to get back into the classroom. Plus, how many lawsuits will there be surrounding Common Core? The state's top school board just joined one against the governor. And, did you see the record contract for former LSU Tiger Patrick Peterson? The current Arizona Cardinal is now the highest paid cornerback in the NFL! So, he's got that going for him.
