School Choice

School Choice Expands for Indiana Families

More than 8,000 families use vouchers and new charter schools are opening their doors


As schools open across Northwest Indiana, parents have more school options for their children than ever before, all with state tax dollars.

The state's new expansive voucher program is entering its second year, and more than 8,000 parents are receiving state vouchers to send their children to private, typically religious-based schools.

In addition to voucher-based private schools, there's a couple new Northwest Indiana charter schools, aimed at struggling students, that will open their doors for the first time.
