Louisiana School Voucher Program Ruled Unconstitutional

Apparently deciding where you want your kid to go to school is not a right


A Baton Rouge judge has ruled Louisiana governor Bobby Jindal's private school tuition voucher program unconstitutional.

State Judge Tim Kelley ruled Friday that Jindal's program "improperly diverts money allocated through Louisiana's public school funding formula to private schools. He also said it unconstitutionally diverts local tax dollars to private schools."
