Judge Deals Setback To Louisiana’s Voucher Program

Lead in text: 
A New York Times story by Campbell Robertson examines a Federal judge's ruling that the state's financing of the new school voucher system is unconstitutional.
Judge Timothy Kelley of State District Court ruled that the way in which the state finances its new voucher program violates the state Constitution, as it relies on money intended in "plain and unambiguous" terms solely for public schools. In a statement, Governor Jindal called the decision "wrongheaded and a travesty for parents across Louisiana" and vowed to appeal.
