Evidence presented in Strafford County Superior Court today will show that public school parents have little interest in New Hampshire’s tax credit funded voucher program.  Out of 701 voucher applications received so far, the Network for Educational Opportunity lists the applicant’s current school on less than half.  Among those students, only 15 students currently attend public schools.  Seventy six percent of the students for whom the current school is listed would use the voucher attend a private religious school.  Most of the rest are homeschooling now and would use the state subsidy to continue to homeschool.  Here is the whole story.

It will be hard to show that New Hampshire’s voucher program has a legitimate public purpose.
