Ever Wonder How To Get A School Voucher?

Something to think about from the Indianapolis Star

Five weeks: That’s how long state officials have left to launch a school voucher program that will let low- and middle-income Hoosiers use state tax dollars to pay for private school.

Parents are starting to ask questions.

Private schools are gearing up.

And the state’s biggest school district is fighting back.

As of print time, the Department of Education has indefinite plans to create a voucher webpage.  A number of private schools have opted out of the program due to a provision which requires a student to attend a public school for two semesters before transferring to a private school.  Meaning, students will have to wait until first grade to attend.
