    Supreme Court Takes Up Publicly Funded Religious Schools

    Soon you will have to fund your local evangelical school with taxpayer school because otherwise your discriminating against religion. What if that religion preaches death to Jews and blacks? What if it just discriminated against atheists?

    It is funding parents through financial aid to send their children to any private school they want, religiously oriented ones inclusive.
    The article correctly refers to a past case where government money went to all schools that had paved playgrounds to upgrade them to safer rubberized ones. The supreme court ruled that the separation clauses did not apply since it was a provision for all schools, and to deny the benefit to schools that happen to be religious would not be inline with the spirit of the law.
    The funds here for financial aid are neither exclusively for, nor prohibited to be for, any particular type of private school.
