BATON ROUGE - An attorney for the Louisiana Association of Educators sent a letter asking voucher schools to hold off on using money until the legal challenge is finalized.

The association's president said the latter hopes to prevent schools from having to pay back dollars spent if courts rule the voucher program unconstitutional.

Superintendent John White with the state Department of Education called the letters "threatening".

News 2's Adrian Pittman gets answers tonight on what this could mean for schools participating in the voucher program.
