Louisiana Rules School Vouchers Unconstitutional

In a small victory for traditional public schools, a Louisiana judge ruled last week that Governor Jindal’s school voucher program was unconstitutional.The judge ruled against the program because it transfers money expressly reserved for public elementary and secondary schools and uses it to fund private, religious and online schools, as well as post-secondary institutions, that are clearly not public elementary and secondary schools. The ruling could have implications for similar voucher programs in other states.
