Not that John White is deterred. He must have some extra change in his gris gris pouch he's not telling us about.
White has said he is confident that, even if vouchers were struck down, state officials will find a way to continue the aid.Okay well good luck figuring out how to do that while the Governor is barely able to keep control over the budget process anymore.
He did not spell out specifics. White is in Washington, D.C. Tuesday.
Eric Lewis, who is state director of the Louisiana branch of the Black Alliance for Educational Options, which is a major backer of vouchers, said he is confident the assistance will continue.
“Superintendent White has committed that the program is going to be funded,” Lewis said.
But you never know where the money could turn up. If there are this many "shadow" schools lurking about, there's bound to be a shadow budget somewhere, right?
