Equal Treatment for Religious Schools
A Supreme Court majority in June , rejected an attempt by Maine to bar parents from using state tuition assistance to pay for their children to attend religious schools where no public school is available.*
Chief Justice John Roberts wrote, “There is nothing neutral about Maine’s program. The state pays tuition for certain students at private schools – so long as the schools are not religious. That is discrimination against religion.” The parents celebrated the decision as a victory for school choice.
