(Baltimore Sun) A state education panel has voted unanimously to rescind taxpayer-funded vouchers from a Harford County Lutheran school that said it reserved the right to deny admission to gay and transgender students.
The board of the state's private school voucher program made the decision Wednesday after being alerted to the discriminatory language in the handbook of Trinity Lutheran Christian School in Joppa.
The decision means the school will not receive any voucher money this year.

Nineteen students at the school have received the vouchers this year to help pay tuition. A provision in the state voucher law prohibits the school from expelling those children this year. Students may take the scholarship money and move to another school.
