Vouchers are struggling in Arizona

Matthew Ladner of the The Goldwater Institute reports in Arizona vouchers down, but not out that:

"... last week an Arizona appeals court struck down the voucher programs for children with disabilities and foster care children."

Part of the Arizona Constitution reads:

"No tax shall be laid or appropriation of public money made in aid of any church, or private or sectarian school, or any public service corporation."

Based on the law the court may have made the right decision.

In general I find the logic interesting that so many people hostile to vouchers because they might be used at a private, religious, school, are comfortable with the government giving money to private colleges.

I wonder if the State of Arizona gives money to private colleges.
