Union effort to intimidate voucher schools fails miserably - EAGnews.org :: Education Research, Reporting, Analysis and Commentary:
"BATON ROUGE, La. – A recent ploy by the Louisiana Association of Educators to intimidate private and parochial schools from participating in the state’s new voucher program was a miserable failure, despite the union’s claims to the contrary.
The LAE last week sent a letter to 119 private schools set to accept transfer students from public schools under Louisiana’s recently enacted voucher program, threatening them with lawsuits if they do. The union provided forms for the schools to send to the state, indicating they will not participate in the program until legal questions are resolved.
The union letter came after a Louisiana judge rejected the LAE’s attempt to block the program’s schedule launch this fall while it challenges the constitutionality of vouchers.
This week, the LAE claimed that two private schools have agreed not to use state voucher money until the union’s legal challenge is resolved, but LAE attorney Brian Blackwell refused to identify the schools, according to theAdvocate.com."
