Rally denounces proposed Indiana voucher expansion...
INDIANAPOLIS (AP) _ Hundreds of people have rallied at the Indiana Statehouse a proposed expansion of the state's private school voucher system.
The Tuesday afternoon rally sponsored by the Indiana Coalition for Public Education came a week after similar event by supporters of the voucher expansion.
Indiana PTA president Sharon Wise told the crowd of about 500 people that the proposed expansion was a ``massive overstep'' that would strip money from traditional public schools.
The Legislature is considering a Republican-backed proposal to expand Indiana's 2-year-old voucher system that already is the nation's largest. A bill already approved by the Indiana House this year would allow kindergartners and some other children to be eligible without first spending a year in public schools.
