A judge in Baton Rouge, La. ruled on Friday that the state’s recently implemented school voucher system is unconstitutional.

The AP reported that State Judge Tim Kelley determined the voucher program, currently serving nearly 5,000 students in the state, improperly diverts funds allocated for the state’s public schools to private ones. Kelley also said the program unconstitutionally diverts local tax funds to private schools.

The lawsuit, brought by a coalition of Louisiana educational organizations, will likely be appealed, according to CBS affiliate WAFB. The decision came four days after a federal judge ruled the voucher program also violated one parish’s desegregation orders.

    Good news! Especially since Gov. Skeletor’s trying to push this in Fla, too, and even tried to shove it in to the state...
