Good News to End the Week: Indiana Choice Program Growing at Record Pace

Posted under Parents & PPC & Private Schools & School Choice

While the Douglas County Choice Scholarship Program is on hold due to a court-ordered injunction, its Indiana cousin is the source of good news for students and families seeking to exercise more beneficial educational choices. An Indianapolis TV station reported on Wednesday:

The Department of Education said 3,800 students are receiving vouchers, a program created and implemented in less than three months.

“It is the largest uptake of a state-funded voucher program in the history of the United States,” Bennett said.

Most students participating are from low or moderate income families.

This isn’t the first time I’ve written about the Indiana program’s burgeoning popularity. But it’s worth pointing out again as the trend continues. The proof keeps growing that 2011 indeed is the Year of School Choice.

Nice way to end the week on a positive note….
