Private School Vouchers Ruled Unconstitutional
This is truly good news - the whole point of the GOP’s campaign for vouchers is to prop up private religious schools while sucking money out of public schools.
Wake county Superior Court Judge Robert Hobgood ruled Thursday that the program is unconstitutional on several levels.
Hobgood says the program pays for students to attend schools that are not obliged to meet state curriculum requirements, violating the state constitution’s guarantee for students to have an opportunity to a sound basic education.
Hobgood said it’s also unconstitutional for public funds to go to privately run and managed schools. At Cape Fear Academy the issue of vouchers hasn’t really been an issue.
