The June 2006 issue of School Reform News reports on state efforts to raise the bar on high school graduation standards--to better prepare students for the world beyond high school--and efforts in Arizona and Colorado to direct higher education funding to students, rather than to institutions.

On page 1:

  • School choice advocates call on states to continue the voucher relief made available to students displaced by Hurricane Katrina.
  • The Goldwater Institute and Milton & Rose D. Friedman Foundation have collaborated on a comprehensive examination of school finance in Arizona.
  • Colorado Gov. Bill Owens has vetoed a bill that would have added restrictions to the state's alternative certification program for school principles.
  • The Alliance for School Choice and Coalition for Urban Renewal and Education have filed suit against two Los Angeles school districts, alleging the districts are not offering school choice options required by the No Child Left Behind Act.

Also in this issue: federal tuition tax credit proposals, per-pupil spending in Vermont, scholarships and accountability in Florida, Maine's tuitioning program, school construction in New Jersey, anti-obesity efforts in Maryland and Pennsylvania, and more.
