These 40 School Systems (So Far) Are Suing To Stop Dan Soucek's School Voucher Scheme

Sen. Dan Soucek was a handy legislative tool in getting a provision into the state budget to grant up to $4,200 per student per year of taxpayer money to parents wishing to send their children to private schools. (In its original version, I believe this was called  the Kill Public Education Act of 2012.)

A lawsuit was filed Dec. 11 in Wake Superior Court challenging the constitutionality of the voucher scheme, and now some 40 school systems across the state have signed on as co-plaintiffs to that suit, including some obvious communists in places like Catawba, Cleveland, Rutherford, Surry, and Yancey counties (full list below).

They do not like your voucher scheme, Senator Soucek, and they think it bad policy, let alone unconstitutional, to rob public schools in order to fund private education.

Irony! Soucek's appointment to the joint task force to study teacher pay!

Or Ashe? Hopefully, Watauga and Ashe will be on the list soon!

The only jobs created by small minded Republicans like Dan Soucek will be for attorneys to fight against his brand of repressive government.

Wow! I had no ideal that the former Soviet Union had taken over those Counties during the Cold War?
