The High Court Takes on School Choice

A decision in the case has seismic implications not just for schools and the Constitution but for the Trump administration’s No. 1 education priority.

 

January 23, 2020



When the Supreme Court hears oral arguments Wednesday concerning a decision by Montana's Supreme Court to halt the operation of a tax credit scholarship program, the justices will face a debate that's been roiling the nation for 200 years – namely, whether public funds can flow to religious schools.

A decision either way is set to have seismic implications, not just for states and their public school systems but also for the fate of the Trump administration's No.1 education priority: a $5 billion tax credit scholarship. It could also serve to cement the president in the good graces of his important evangelical Christian base ahead of the 2020 election, or not.
