INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — An Indiana teachers union official says she is disappointed that
the state Supreme Court has upheld the nation's broadest school voucher program
but isn't sure if the case will be appealed to the U.S. Supreme Court.
Indiana State Teachers Association Vice President Teresa Meredith says she still believes the state should be investing in public schools and making those the best they can be.
The voucher law upheld unanimously Tuesday gives low- and middle-income students public money to attend private schools. More than 9,000 students are participating this year.
The teachers union sued over the law and said it harmed public schools by diverting money intended for them to the voucher program.
The justices sided with supporters who argued the program gives families more educational choices.
