Ind. Decisions - "Public schools take blow from Indiana Supreme Court"

That is the heading to columnist Dan Carpenter's story posted on the IndyStar site earlier this afternoon. It begins:

Now that the Indiana Supreme Court has ended the debate over the state constitutionality of school vouchers, the legislature can go ahead and proceed with its debate over how large to make the program.

Oh, wait. That’s already happening.

The privatization parade was not about to march in place while trifling questions over the separation of church and state and the meaning of common schools were being weighed.

Tuesday’s 5-0 decision came the day before the Indiana Senate Education Committee was scheduled to vote on a striking expansion of the tuition subsidy for non-public schools, a measure already approved handily by the full House.
