Supreme Court Says Religious Schools in Maine Can’t Be Excluded from Voucher Program

HeadlineJun 22, 2022

The court’s six conservative justices ruled private religious schools in the state of Maine cannot be excluded from a program where the state pays tuition for some students attending private schools. Justice Sonia Sotomayor disagreed with the majority, writing, “Today, the Court leads us to a place where separation of church and state becomes a constitutional violation.”
