NC judge weighs legality of school vouchers plan

Tuesday, August 19th, 2014

RALEIGH, NC (AP) — A North Carolina judge is hearing arguments on whether it’s constitutional for tax money to be used to pay for tuition at private or religious schools. Wake County Superior Court Judge Robert Hobgood hears arguments on the issue on Tuesday.

Taxpayer and teachers groups as well as many of the state’s 115 school boards are challenging whether the state can spend public money on K-12 tuition at private or religious schools.

Hobgood blocked the state voucher program in February until there could be a trial on the issue.

But the state Supreme Court reversed him in May and the first $730,000 in tuition money for more than 360 students is expected to be released on Tuesday.
