Louisiana Private Schools Get Help in Voucher Battle

Two school choice groups promise assistance to schools sued by the teachers union for accepting vouchers


A pair of national pro-voucher groups are vowing to stand up for Louisiana schools who have been warned they could face lawsuits if they participate in the state's new private school choice program.

The Alliance for School Choice and the Institute for Justice say they are creating a legal defense fund to help private schools who were told by a state teachers' union that they could end up in court if they accept students through the taxpayer-funded program.
