(KSL News) The University of Utah researchers have set out to answer some of the most common questions on Referendum No. 1, the voucher law.
The Center for Public Policy and Administration will release a report later this week that deals not with politics, but research.
Some of the points of interest, researchers note, are that students already enrolled in private schools don't qualify for vouchers unless they're considered low income, vouchers will cost between $43 and $59 million when fully implemented, and private schools must apply to take part in the voucher program, but they're not required to. And some private schools, including Challenger, will not accept vouchers.
Tonight, KSL News will host a Conversation on Referendum No. 1: School Vouchers. Richard Eyre, representing Parents for Choice in Education, and Lisa Johnson, from Utahns for Public Schools, will be in studio to discuss this hot-button issue.
That starts tonight 6:30 p.m. directly following Eyewitness News at 6.
