About the Program
The Trump Administration appears committed to reducing the role of government in education, by repurposing funds available to States under the Elementary and Secondary Education Act to vouchers that parents can use to enroll their children in public schools, charter schools, private schools, religious schools or cyber schools.  What does this mean in practice?  Will the non-public schools be subject to minimum standards for education?  Will the vouchers be large enough to pay for a quality education?  Will public schools end up being the only option for the poor and the disabled?  Students with disabilities currently have an array of rights under both the IDEA and section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act.  Will those rights continue to exist?  Does competition produce better education?  How does this federal voucher scheme comport with Art. 8, § 1 of the Connecticut Constitution guaranteeing free public elementary and secondary schools?

·        An overview of the current laws concerning education
