Coalition: McCain Amendment Tramples on Home Rule
This afternoon, the U.S. House of Representatives voted on two amendments to the reauthorization of the Elementary & Secondary Education Act that would have permitted federal tax dollars to be used for private school vouchers. The first amendment, which failed by a vote of 155-to-273, would have created vouchers through the Title I program for children in public schools that are deemed "failing."
