Indiana passes school choice, budget, pro-life legislation
Focuses eligibility [for school choice vouchers] on lower income families. Families at or below the income threshold for the Federal Free and Reduced Lunch program approximately $40,000 for a family of four can receive 90 percent of their per student home school corporation state tuition support. Families with incomes of approximately $60,000 for a family of four can receive 50 percent of the state tuition support amount per student. However, $4,500 is the maximum a student in grades 1-8 may receive.
The Indiana Democrats had walked out on both the poor and the children, in order to maintain power for their union cronies.
