The Arizona Supreme Court has announced that on March 25 it will decide whether two school tuition-voucher programs for disabled and foster children should be allowed to continue.
By way of background, in May, an appellate court decided the Arizona vouchers for disabled and foster children were unconstitutional since some of the money went to religious schools. The other side argues that the money is going to the children, not the schools. So the pro-voucher people appealed the decision to the Supreme Court.
Rep. Andy Biggs, a Republican from Gilbert who has been a strong proponent of school vouchers, said he hopes the Arizona Supreme Court will issue a broad opinion supporting school vouchers that can be used to justify the expansion of similar programs.
That's a definite Yes.
