Supreme Court to hear School Vouchers case
A school voucher program in Louisiana will be the subject of a case to be heard by the Supreme Court on Tuesday. This has been a hot button issue pushed by Republicans and resisted by Democrats. The question is whether public funds can be used to pay for education in private schools. Religion seems to be the lightening rod in this case as stated by individuals opposing the voucher program. “Louisiana legislators are siphoning money from tax-starved public schools to feed private schools that promote dogma and aren’t accountable to the taxpayers,” said the Rev. Barry W. Lynn, executive director of Americans United. “It’s a travesty, and the court should put an end to it.”
