Actually, when considering the net state and local fiscal impact, there is an expected savings. Other states with similar programs have seen substantial savings - in Indiana the state is expected to save around $5 million this year. These savings are then redistributed to the public schools. Also, there are other state supreme courts that have upheld school choice as constitutional. Indiana's constitution calls for a uniform system of common schools (similar to North Carolina's uniformity clause) and it has a Blaine Amendment, yet the Supreme Court there found that its school choice program was constitutional.
