INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - The Indiana Supreme Court has upheld the nation's broadest school voucher program, clearing the way for its expansion.

Critics had argued that the program primarily benefited religious institutions that run private schools.

But the program's supporters say parents can send their children to any school they want, whether it's public or private, religious or not, and the Supreme Court agreed with that Tuesday. In a 5-0 decision, the justices said the program does not violate the state constitution.

The Indiana case has been closely watched because its voucher program is open to middle-class families, while most state voucher programs are limited to low-income families or those in failing schools. More than 500,000 Indiana students qualify for vouchers.

Also, lawmakers have introduced a bill to expand the program to kindergarten.
A 7.4 magnitude quake has shaken Mexico City. Frightened workers rode out the quake. One worker said they didn't know whether to hit the floor or run outside.

The epicenter was 115 miles outside of the resort town of Acupulco, between Oaxaca where thousands of American travelers are in Mexico for spring break, including President Obama's oldest daughter, Malia, who is reportedly safe.

Several bridges have collapsed. One truck was crushed but no reports of death. Many captured the frightening moment on video.

Illinois State Police undergoing reaccreditation

Tuesday, 26 March 2013 06:20 Published in Local News
The agency announced Monday it will be assessed by the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies. It's the state police's seventh time being assessment by the group. The force will be rated on policy and procedures, management, operations and support services. It has to comply with 364 standards to maintain accreditation.

The assessment runs from April 14 to 17. Illinois State Police was the first state police agency that the commission accredited. That happened in 1986. The commission's accreditation is valid for three years.

State Police Director Hiram Grau says accreditation "sets the tone for excellence and ensures that police service is administered efficiently and professionally."
