The West Virginia Supreme Court of Appeals has issued its decision on the Hope scholarship program. It’s a victory for advocates of private schools and homeschooling. It’s a setback for public schools, but within that setback is a challenge that may work for the best in the long run.
The decision itself isn’t new. The court issued a short order on Oct. 6 allowing nonpublic schools to receive voucher money. The decision issued Thursday explains the court’s reasoning.
