INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (Indiana's NewsCenter) -- The Indiana State Teachers Association vows to appeal a decision by a Marion County Superior Court judge on the constitutionality of the state's school voucher law.

Last Friday the judge ruled the Choice Scholarship program did not violate the state constitution because the state isn't directly funding parochial schools since the scholarship vouchers are given to parents who can choose at what schools to use them.

About 4,000 children currently are participating in the program, making it the nations largest.
