Massive exodus of Indiana public school children in voucher program

Indiana's Superintendent of Public Instruction Tony Bennett called the massive exodus  of public school students in Indiana's schools to private ones receiving vouchers as "off to a great start" this week in what he described as:
"...the biggest first year school choice program in the history of the U.S., with 3,685 students receiving vouchers to leave public schools in favor of private schools."
The Indiana State Teachers Association challenged the legality of the voucher program, as well as, the controversial evaluation system grading schools same as students from A to F.
