Private School, One of the most popular school students to receive new bonds of Indiana private school has a waiting list and your school is considering moving to another building to allow more students to attend next year.

About 16 million dollars in state money used to pay the 3919 students who attend private schools under the program began in the fall. Indiana voucher program is significantly higher than those in other states, offering money to students from middle class homes and solid school districts.

Cornerstone Christian College Preparatory School in Fort Wayne and received 431,000 and saw its enrollment from 26 last year to 129 this year. Ninety-four students attend the school through bonds, the second largest number of students who use vouchers.

“I really do not know what to expect,” said Tiffanie Naylor, Cornerstone’s chief of staff, told The Journal Gazette. “It’s working very well for us and the students.”

She said 42 people interested in the use of vouchers to attend school are on the waiting list.

Fort Wayne Community Schools lost 392 students this year to the state’s new voucher, rather than any other school district in Indiana. Indianapolis Public Schools has most of the students within its boundaries through bonds – 644 to 288 but these were already attending private school before the new program was conducted.

“We are establishing public schools for failure,” said Smith, member of the House Education and a professor of education at Indiana University Northwest.

Smith said the research shows Unsecured academic performance.

“I will wait and see what results, but there are many concerns,” he said.

State Superintendent of Public Instruction Tony Bennett told The Indianapolis Star that he is proud that the program has grown very rapidly.

“I hope that scales to any size you need to meet the needs of children and their parents who are making this election,” he said.

The Indiana State Teachers Association, who is arguing in court that the program is a unconstitutional mix of state money and religious institutions, said the program deserves greater scrutiny, and that large numbers become more difficult to educate public school students.

Stamp eligibility depends on family income and size. A family of four earning less than 42,000 a year and can receive up to 90 percent of state aid for education of children in public schools. The families of four people and between 42,000 and 62,000 and can receive 50 percent of the amount of state aid.
