Indiana: Catholic schools benefit from new voucher law

Catholic World News - July 12, 2011

More than 80 non-public schools, most of them Catholic, will be participating in a new voucher program approved by the Indiana legislature in April.

Many middle-income families, as well as lower-income families, will be eligible for the vouchers. For example, a family of four whose household income is under $62,021 will be eligible, as will a family of eight whose income is under $104,423.

    It is important to note that this law is not all good. The vouchers can only be used for Catholic schools that agree to participate in the Common Core State Standards Initiative -- a national curriculum and testing promoted by the Obama Administration. It is always dangerous when the state bribes Catholic schools to yield up curricular autonomy.
