Hope Scholarship ruled unconstitutional!
Statement from AFT-WV President Fred Albert on ruling July 6, 2022 by Judge Tabit on the Hope Scholarships:
“AFT-West Virginia is pleased that Judge Tabit granted the plaintiff’s request for an injunction to put a hold on the Hope Scholarship program. Judge Tabit’s ruling that “the Legislature has violated its constitutional level obligations regarding public education and funding by enacting House Bill 2013 for the Hope scholarship fund” aligns with our organization’s belief that public funds should be used for the benefit of public schools and the students they serve, in accordance with the WV Constitution. “
