WV Supreme Court rules Hope Scholarship Program constitutional
HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (WSAZ) - The West Virginia Supreme Court reversed a decision by the Kanawha County Circuit Court Thursday, ruling the Hope Scholarship Program constitutional, according to West Virginia Attorney General Patrick Morrisey.
Since Tuesday, West Virginia Supreme Court justices have been hearing arguments about whether the previous ruling by the Kanawha County Circuit Court should be upheld.
In July, a Kanawha County judge ruled that the Hope Scholarship program was unconstitutional. That ruling was later appealed, which turned it over to the West Virginia Supreme Court.
On Twitter, AG Morrisey wrote, “WV kids deserve the best public schools and as many private sector options as possible. This is a big win for educational freedom, #Hope”
