State court upholds constitutionality of school vouchers
March 28, 2013
The Indiana Supreme Court has unanimously upheld the constitutionality of a school voucher program that assisted parents in sending their children in the schools of their choice.
“This has allowed a large number of families, many of them Catholic, to be able to choose Catholic education for their children for the first time,” said G. Joseph Peters, associate executive director of the Archdiocese of Indianapolis’s Catholic education office.
“It’s a major step toward an educational system that truly reinforces that parents are the primary educators of their children,” added Harry Plummer, executive director of the archdiocese’s Catholic education and faith formation office.
