Summary

The proposed constitutional amendment would allow the expenditure of public funds for private schools and private school students. It would remove prmary and secondary schools from the list on nonpublic institutions barred from receiving public aid and would allow public money, property, or loans of credit to be used for funding, maintaining, or aiding those schools. The proposed amendment would also allow public financial aid materials, or services to be provided to a non-public school student requesting such aid, but only if that school does not discriminate in its entrance requirements on the basis, of race, color, national origin, religious belief, sex, or physical handicap. The state legislature would have the power to impose limits on aid, materials, or services provided to students.
