Are You in Favor of School Vouchers? [POLL]

Gov. Bobby Jindal’s effort to grant students in troubled public schools private school vouchers moved closer to reaching the goal with approval by a Senate Committee.

After several hours of debate, the Education Committee voted 5-1 to send SB597 to the full Senate for consideration. Supporters say it would help children trapped in failing schools. Opponents say it is aimed at destroying public education.

Both opponents and supporters challenge the claim that SB597 is for children in failing schools when students in schools graded “C” could also participate. Around 75% percent of the students in a “C” school are performing at grade level.
