Jindal voucher overhaul unconstitutionally diverts public funds to private schools, judge rules

Source: Times Picayune

Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal's school voucher overhaul was dealt a blow Friday when a Baton Rouge area judge declared the diversion of public money by the voucher program to private schools unconstitutional.
...
The first part of Judge Tim Kelley's ruling declared that the law passed to implement the controversial program -- Senate Concurrent Resolution 99 -- was done in a valid and constitutional manner.

He also ruled Act 2 -- the voucher overhaul -- did not violate the "single object" requirement of the state constitution allowing for a bill to only effect one policy at a time.

But in the second part of his ruling, Kelley declared the diversion of funds from the Minimum Foundation Program (MFP)-- the formula under which per pupil public education funds are calculated -- to private entities was unconstitutional.
