School Vouchers Okay with the Governor

Governor Rick Perry said he'd like to see a school voucher plan emerge from the special session.

Wednesday morning, Perry called it a "public school choice" pilot program, but did not elaborate on specifics of how the measure would work.

Wednesday is day two of the special session. Lawmakers from both parties are pledging to put aside partisan differences to find a better system for funding public education in Texas.
