Indiana school vouchers upheld

In a ruling that could reverberate nationwide, the Indiana Supreme Court upheld the state's voucher program, which gives poor and middle class families public funds to help pay for private school tuition, including religious schools.

Indiana has the broadest school voucher program available to a range of incomes, critics say, and could set a precedent as other states seek ways to expand such programs.

    Many suburban public schools near New York City are producing very well educated high-school graduates. Within the city, private schools, from Chapin and Collegiate down, are the wiser choice for parents.

    Awesome, just what we need more of: state-subsidized religion. It really makes me feel good, knowing that my tax money is going towards teaching kids junk science such as creationism.

      Clearly, public schools worked well for your family. I see no semblance of punctuation, grammar or capitalization in your statement. Perhaps, when arguing against using 'your tax dollars' for a better education for others, you may want to spell check your statement.

      Where has this "Eff you I have mine" mentality come from in regards to this nation's social contract? You live in the area, then you support the youth of the area who do going to public school so that they can become more educated and do well in life which should help all of society.
