I <3 Governor Jindall!
This will punch another hole in the NEA; good news and good initiative. Let’s see other big states controlled by the GOP like Michigan, Pennsylvania and Ohio follow suit.
So, when is Obama/Holder’s “jus’ dis” department going to rule this “unconstitutional?”
Piyush! Piyush! Piyush!
I would love to see him as GOP VP nominee this year!
Is this the first state to do this?
I wonder how they define 'low- and middle-income." Sounds like welfare if the same option isn't available for everyone. While I can't stand government schools, I fear that vouchers are the beginning of state-control of private schools. After all, if state money is being used, then they will start deciding what they can and can't teach.
Excellent. Nothing like an empty school to get the attention of crappy teachers and crappy administrators.
Wish California had this.
Stand by for loud screeching noises, sabotage, and lies, lies, lies.
Of course, the lawsuits are coming from the NEA, ACLU, and other race mongers. Expect it go to the USSC via the Department of Education, which should be disbanded. In a perfect world, it would be State issue, only.
The academic ranking for students in Louisiana is at the bottom, so it will be interesting to see if the school voucher works. NEA must be in a panic mode.
This is how we roll back liberalism. Great news!
