(AP) — Testimony in a Baton Rouge trial challenging Gov. Bobby Jindal’s statewide voucher program has ended.
The last witness in the case was Valerie Evans, whose 11-year-old son has been in the New Orleans voucher program that was the predecessor to the newly-created statewide program. Evans talked of her inability to afford private school tuition without the state covering its cost.
Judge Tim Kelley heard testimony over Wednesday and Thursday and asked lawyers to give him their final pitches Friday.
