Vouchers for Chicago schoolchildren advances to full House

parents of students in kindergarten through eighth grade could put the $3,717 voucher toward tuition at participating private and parochial schools. The program would begin in the fall of 2011 and could impact up to 30,000 students, said Rep. Kevin Joyce, D-Chicago….it also would extend vouchers to students from poor families in the most-overcrowded schools

Public teacher unions lined up in opposition and warned of a lawsuit if the bill becomes law.
