Jindals Voucher Program To Start In August

Tuesday, July 10, 2012 - 10:44pm

Governor Jindal's voucher program will start in August.

Several teachers unions tried to keep it from being funded but a judge refused to stand in the way.

The bill allows poor kids from underperformign schools to use state tax dollars to attend private schools.

Opponents say it is not fair for public schools that really need that money.

Judge Tim Kelley ruled he does not have the power to block Jindal's plan to divert public money into that voucher program.

Money will be available for qualifying students beginning August first. 

Several teachers unions are thinking about fighting today's ruling because they think the voucher program is unconstitutional.
