High Court weighs fairness of tax credits for religious school students
from USA Today
An ideologically divided Supreme Court wrestled with taxpayers' ability to challenge state programs that support students at religious schools and may violate the constitutional separation of church and state. In the balance is an Arizona program that gives tax credits to people who donate money to "school tuition organizations" that then provide scholarships to students for private schools, including religious institutions. A group of taxpayers claims most of the money is channeled to organizations that restrict their grants to religious education. The case tests when taxpayers nationwide can even get into court to claim a state has violated the First Amendment's dictate that government "shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion."
