BATON ROUGE (WBRZ)-A district court judge ruled today the funding formula in Gov. Bobby Jindal's school voucher program violates the state's constitution.
Judge Tim Kelley made the ruling after a week of arguments and testimony in Baton Rouge. He said it was against the constitution to send tax money intended for public schools instead to private schools.
Teacher unions and school boards filed the lawsuit, wanting the program shut down. State education officials argued the system was set up in line with the constitution.
