Conservative Group Files Lawsuit Over EdChoice Deadline Extension
A lawsuit has been filed in the Ohio Supreme Court by families who are affected by the legislature's recently imposed 60-day moratorium on vouchers for the state's EdChoice program.
Ohio Public Radio's Jo Ingles reports.
Aaron Baer with the Citizens for Community Values says he represents parents and schools who have been harmed by the law pushing the EdChoice window from February 1 to April 1. Baer says it’s also unenforceable because it lacks an emergency clause that would allow it take effect right away.
“The manner in which they addressed this is unconstitutional. And what they did, in particular, is hurting a lot of families and it should not have come to this.”
The House and Senate passed the 60 day freeze on applications for EdChoice after both chambers had a disagreement over how to proceed with legislation to change the program.
