Faculty authorities are pushing in opposition to Indiana voucher extensions
INDIANAPOLIS (AP) – Local principals across Indiana oppose a Republican-backed school funding plan, alleging the plan will be a big boost to private schools at the expense of traditional public schools.
At least 65 public school authorities have made formal resolutions against the voucher expansion and a new program that allows parents to directly spend government funds on their child’s education costs.
Terry Spradlin, executive director of the Indiana School Boards Association, said the resolutions are part of a campaign to ensure that public funding goes to public schools.
