Judge holds hearing Monday on Arizona voucher case

A judge in Phoenix on Monday hears arguments on a legal challenge to a state school voucher program.

At issue is a voucher program that provides money to parents of children with disabilities for private school tuition and other educational expenses.

Challengers contend the program violates a state constitutional prohibition against using tax dollars to assist private schools.

Supporters say the program doesn’t run afoul of the constitutional prohibition because the program gives discretion to parents on how to spend the money.

The case is being heard in Maricopa County Superior Court.

  1. It is unfortunate that more states don’t honor the voucher program. Parents should determine which education options is best for their child. Since parents are responsible to see that their child is educated they should have every option open to them. http://www.bootcampsforteens.com/index.html can help parents looking for the best opportunity for their teen. When a boot camp may not be the best option parents can consider a teen boarding school.
