Or at least the high court declined to hear a case dealing with school vouchers, and in the process knocked the supporters of the concept down a few pegs.
They let stand a ruling from a lower court which said that a Maine law forbidding the use of state funds to send students to religious schools is constitutional.
In Maine, school districts in 145 small towns with no high schools offer tuition for 17,000 students to attend high schools of their choice, public or private, in-state or out-of-state. But religious schools are no longer on the list.
Asking the court to take the case, a conservative group, the Institute for Justice, is representing eight Maine families who would receive public tuition funds but for the fact that their children attend religious schools.
I wonder what part of the concept of separation of church and state these people don’t understand.
