Proposal to expand Indiana's private school voucher program

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, KY. (WDRB) -- Indiana lawmakers are considering a proposal that would expand the state's private school voucher program.  The state Senate's Education Committee is scheduled to hold a hearing today on the bill that would make it easier for siblings of those already in the program to also receive vouchers.

Indiana has the country's largest voucher program, and is spending about $36 million to provide more than 9,000 vouchers this school year.

It provides public subsidies to low- and moderate-income families to send their children to private schools.
