Republicans look to expand Voucher Program

Republican Lawmakers are looking to expand the school vouchers program that would be expanded to offer taxpayer-funded scholarships to foster children and military families interested in private schools, if legislation under consideration at the Capitol passes. These vouchers are available now to special needs children. Legislators and Gov. Sonny Perdue approved that program in 2007 after a protracted fight over the state’s role in funding education.

Now who wants to deny vouchers to military families & foster childern? But looking at the bigger picture, the GOP wants to impose school vouchers on the state as a whole, therefore decimating the entire Georgia Public School System of money it already doesn't have. For full story click on title.
