MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WHNT) - In a 222-page ruling issued late Monday, the Supreme Court of Alabama held that the Alabama Accountability Act does not violate the state constitution.

The move overturned a lower court's ruling that the school choice law was unconstitutional.

The controversial act was intended to allow students in failing school districts to apply for scholarships to non-failing public or private schools.
