(Pierre, SD) — A school voucher bill is facing a grim future in the South Dakota House. The bill that would have allowed students to use public funding for private K through 12 schools was sent to the 41st day of the session by the Education committee yesterday, essentially killing it. Supporters say the program would strengthen public education by sparking competition on academics and extra-curricular activities. Opponents say the bill would erode funding for public education and harm the children they serve.
