WV Supreme Court removea block on state’s sweeping non-public school vouchers program

West Virginia’s nonpublic school voucher program, the nation’s broadest, with the possible exception of a new program in Arizona, may move forward.

The West Virginia Supreme Court released a roughly one-and-a-half-page order Thursday that lifts a lower court’s block on the program. Tamerlin Godley, a Los Angeles-based attorney representing West Virginia parents who wanted to stop the program, said this is the first time a universal voucher program has been allowed to move forward anywhere in the nation.
