Lenoir County has joined a growing number of school districts that have signed on to be plaintiffs in a lawsuit filed by the North Carolina School Boards Association (NCSBA) challenging the recently-enacted school voucher law.
Last week, Lenoir’s school board voted unanimously to join the suit , which calls into question the constitutionality of providing families with $4,200 annual taxpayer-funded scholarships  to use at private schools.
As of today, 16 school districts have signed on to be plaintiffs in the lawsuit.
More districts are expected to follow–Vance County will vote this evening  on whether to join the lawsuit.
*This post was updated to include seven more school districts that have signed on to be plaintiffs in the voucher lawsuit, per NCSBA.
