A major win for parents and school choice today in a 6-3 decision from the Supreme Court [pdf Ruling Here]. The high court ruled that Maine violated the Constitution by refusing to make public funds available for students to attend faith-based schools. The ruling is broad and makes it clear when any state and/or local government choose to subsidize private schools or provide vouchers for school choice, they must allow families pay for religious schools.
Teachers’ unions, left-wing indoctrination institutions and the media are not happy with the Supreme Court decision. The ruling now makes it possible for state or local school vouchers to be used for private, faith-based schools. Those schools also have religious exemptions on the types of material and educators they allow in their education programs.
In the bigger picture the court has again affirmed ‘freedom of religion‘ not ‘freedom from religion‘. Parents who wish their children to receive a moral and virtuous education should not be blocked by state and local politicians who promote sexualization of children, immoral conduct and alternative lifestyles for kids.
