Indiana's School Voucher Program Continues Strong Growth
With a new school year underway, Indiana’s school voucher program now boasts 33,000 students. This is almost 10 times the number of participants from the program’s inaugural school year, 2011-2012, and nearly 4,000 student increase from last year.
Each year, the program has seen significant gains in Hoosier families exercising their right to choose the best educational fit for their children. Initially, the program more than doubled each year making Indiana’s school voucher program one of the fastest growing programs in the nation.
As Indiana’s school voucher program is means-tested, many Hoosier families have had educational opportunities opened to them that they never would have imagined. 318 schools are now approved to accept school vouchers which now makes a quality education a reality for families seeking educational choice.
