Legislation giving a handful of Navajo children from Arizona another year to use their vouchers for tuition at a private New Mexico school has been signed by Gov. Doug Ducey.

Arizona voters have rejected a massive expansion of the state's private school voucher program criticized as a move to drain money from public schools and give it to rich parents to fund their kids' private school tuition.

A proposition on this year’s Arizona ballot is designed to expand the state’s school voucher system. KNAU’s Ryan Heinsius reports, it would make more money available to parents for private or religious school tuition.

Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey is apparently willing to risk further angering the state's teachers by forcefully backing a measure that would massively expand the state's private school voucher system.

  The Arizona Legislature adjourned its 2018 session early Friday, leaving without taking action on two of Gov. Doug Ducey's biggest initiatives of the year, a water policy overhaul and an ambitious school safety proposal that fell victim to concerns about the civil rights.
