School choice program upheld by West Virginia Supreme Court

The West Virginia Supreme Court on Thursday upheld the state’s Hope Scholarship Program as constitutional, reversing a lower court’s decision and dissolving an injunction against the program.

The school choice program allows parents to access an education savings account with average per-pupil state funding set aside for their children to use on private school tuition, tutoring, transportation and other education services.
