Parents across the state filled out applications for 2,415 students to attend 45 private schools, but only 500 students will receive vouchers to attend the 25 private schools that received the most applications this year due to a cap set by the Legislature.

Even more to the point, is it REALLY about “edumacation”, or is it all about “edumacation about how Government Almighty Loveth us Alleth

    1. remember what Hillary said back in 2008; if we do this, then pretty soon jihadists will want to send their kids to schools to learn how to blow up Greyhound buses.
