    AZ Daily Sun: “Arizona’s controversial voucher-like system of using state funds to send children to private and parochial schools is legal, the Arizona Supreme Court ruled Friday.

    Arizona Daily Star: “Unable to kill outright the Common Core program, state senators now are moving to let schools opt out of the national education standards. On a voice vote Wednesday, the Senate approved SB 1395 and SB 1396. While the wording and methodology are different, both essentially allow local school board and charter school operators to decide they do not want to implement the standards.”
