US Supreme Court upholds school vouchers in Arizona

Catholic World News - April 04, 2011

The US Supreme Court has upheld an Arizona law that provides tax vouchers for private-school tuition.

In a 5-4 decision, announced April 4, the Supreme Court rejected arguments that the voucher program violates the First Amendment by providing state support to religious schools. Most of the Arizona families that claim the $500 vouchers use them to pay tuition at religious schools.

    Hallelujah! The bogus liberal argument that the U.S. is supporting "religious schools" when it gives parents school vouchers has been debunked. As long as the parents have the freedom to choose any legitimate school for their children it is none of the government's business which school they pick.
