    Supreme Court upholds private ed. tax credits

    Supreme Court upholds private ed. tax credits

    Kathleen

    The U.S. Supreme Court put new limits on the power of citizens to challenge government programs as unconstitutionally promoting religion, upholding an Arizona tax credit aimed at helping cover private-school tuition costs.

    The justices, voting 5-4, today said opponents lacked “standing” to challenge the 14-year-old program, which gives tax credits for donations to organizations that provide private- school scholarships. The opponents faulted the program for relying on religious organizations that require their recipients to enroll in sectarian schools.”

    This is great news for school choice!

    As an aside, I personally wish more public schools were run like parochial ones. They operate on smaller budgets, have more flexible hiring practices, and don’t have to sift through several levels of bureaucracy to try a new program out.

    Here's a nice article by Dr. Richard A. Baer on the definition of "religion" in the context of public schools:

    @Recovering Lutheran – Amen brother. As an inner-city school teacher for 35 years I second you opinion. Sometimes we have crackpot theories handed to us to implement on a monthly basis. We joke that an Administrator (Principal) hears something on an airplane and is implementing it by the time the aircraft is landing. They have no idea if they will work or not. The principals are just padding their resumes to move up to District level office.
