Louisiana (NBC33) — The Department of Education still doesn't have final numbers on the number of applications for the state's new voucher program.
At last count, 7,800 children had applied for vouchers under new education reform laws.
A spokesperson for the Louisiana Department of Education says the final number should be tallied some time later this week.
