Pence Signs Indiana’s School Voucher Expansion Bill

INDIANAPOLIS, Ind (WOWO): Today at Calvary Christian School, Governor Mike Pence today signed legislation to expand Indiana’s school choice program.

“Our Hoosier students deserve every opportunity to be successful,” said Governor Pence. “That includes having the choice to attend the school that works best for them. Thanks to this legislation, Hoosier students and their families now have more educational options available to meet their individual needs. I applaud the General Assembly for their commitment to quality education in Indiana.”

The plan will allow more kids to be eligible for vouchers without first having to spend at least a year in public schools.
Those immediately eligible will include the siblings of current voucher students and children living in the attendance district of a public school that received a state performance grade of F.
