Jewish groups gave mixed reactions to the move by an Ohio judge to strike down a school voucher plan for students in Cleveland on Tuesday, just one day before schools in that city opened. Opponents of the vouchers welcomed the ruling by U.S. District Judge Solomon Oliver Jr., saying that it reversed a poor decision by Ohio’s Supreme Court, while supporters expressed hope that the ruling would ultimately lead to a final decision on the constitutional validity of vouchers.
