Supreme Court Rules Parents Can Send Their Children To Religious Schools With Public Funds

Supreme Court Rules Parents Can Send Their Children To Religious Schools With Public Funds

LTP News Sharing:

BY ALN STAFF


In a major win for school choice, the Supreme Court ruled on June 21 that parents could use state-provided vouchers to send their children to religious schools.

The court ruled 6-3 in the decision issued in the case of Carson v Makin.

Justice Roberts issued the majority opinion and Justices Thomas, Alito, Gorsuch, Kavanaugh, and Barrett agreed with it. Justices Breyer, Sotomayor, and Kagan made up the dissent.

Per NBC News, the major issue at hand in the case “was a state program in Maine that made taxpayer money available to families who live in remote areas without public high schools. Under the state law, they could use the money for their children’s tuition at public or private schools in other communities, but not for sectarian schools, defined as those that promote a particular faith or belief system and teach material “through the lens of this faith.”

In the opinion, Chief Justice John Roberts wrote the following:

“There is nothing neutral about Maine’s program. The State pays tuition for certain students at private schools—so long as the schools are not religious. That is discrimination against religion. A State’s antiestablishment interest does not justify enactments that exclude some members of the community from an otherwise generally available public benefit because of their religious exercise.”

As summarised by Fox News, Justice Breyer wrote in the dissent that this ruling “runs afoul of the First Amendment. Roberts said in his majority opinion that this was “wrong,” because “Maine chose to allow some parents to direct state tuition payments to private schools; that decision was not ‘forced upon it.”

Breyer further claimed that the “situation ripe for conflict, as it forces Maine into the position of evaluating the adequacy or appropriateness of the schools’ religiously inspired curriculum.”

Texas Republican Ted Cruz celebrated the ruling via a Tweet issued by his office.

Judicial Crisis Network President Carrie Severino called the court’s decision “a victory for religious liberty” in her own Twitter thread.

The America First Policy Institute also shared a similar sentiment, calling it a “BIG WIN for parents and students.”

The American Federation for Children – a conservative pro-school-choice group – issued the following statement from their President Tommy Schultz:

“This is a thunderclap for education freedom. Parents across America can celebrate today as the Court has affirmed their fundamental right to choose an education that works for their family. With today’s ruling, the rights of American students have been resoundingly confirmed. Now, legislators in every state must take action to provide as many options as possible to families in their state. AFC stands ready to support this goal.”

How Tim Scott rose from poverty to become our only black GOP senator

LTP News Sharing:

CHARLESTON, South Carolina — Tim Scott knows the hassle that comes with being both black and conservative. Recently “The View” host Sunny Hostin said that being a black Republican is an oxymoron, and Scott, who is the only black Republican in the US senate, just shook his head.

“The comments are ridiculous,” he said.

The GOP has “championed causes for underserved communities and minority communities that have been really hammered under President Biden,” he said, before pointing to rising inflation and how the average person can barely afford to put gas in the car, use energy in their house, pay for their health care and take care of any other expenses.

“Contrast that against what happened when we were in the majority for 2016 to 2020, where we saw African American unemployment go to the lowest level ever recorded in the history of the country,” he said.

“The only question I have for those pundits on TV is why aren’t they conservative?” he asked.

Tim Scott’s name is in the top tier of those being mentioned as potential Republican presidential candidates in 2024, including Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, former Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley, former Vice President Mike Pence and former President Donald Trump.

So is he planning to run in 2024? He’s not saying, but he admits he gets asked that a lot.

“I don’t think that there’s a day that goes by that I haven’t been asked for the last two months. But I keep telling people the presidency of my homeowner association is not open for another two years,” he jokes.

Whatever happens, faith will guide his choice. “It will be the genesis of that decision,” he said.

The Seacoast Church in nearby Mount Pleasant is “the most powerful force in my adult life,” added Scott of the Christian congregation that had less than 1,000 members when he joined in 1997 and now boasts over 25,000.

Despite having risen to become the most prominent elected black Republican in the country, Tim Scott has never forgotten where he came from. After his parents separated when he was a child, he grew up sharing a single bedroom with his mother and older brother in North Charleston.

His home — which was little more than a shack — was located on a dirt road. Scott said his mother worked double shifts as a nursing assistant at a Charleston hospital, and his grandfather left school in third grade to pick cotton. Even though he was illiterate, his grandfather would hold up the newspaper to “read” in front of his young grandsons just to instill the importance of knowledge and education in them.

“My grandfather … had a passion for progress that was palpable,” Scott said.

“My grandmother who cleaned houses taught me the importance of a work ethic and individual responsibility, and my mom, who is my true ultimate American hero … she taught me the dignity of work.”

“Yet all three of them were always laughing and joyful, even in the midst of poverty as if to suggest that your circumstances don’t determine your outcome. There’s something on the inside of you that is more powerful than the circumstances around you and that really is the basis of my happy warrior approach,” said Scott, 56, who is not married and has no kids of his own.

“The one thing all three of those powerful people had in common was the importance of faith. Through faith, all things were possible.”

Nothing remains of the place his family called home except the dirt and gravel from the old road, but poverty still remains in the neighborhood — and the crime that goes along with it. Which is why Scott said he always keeps his mind on “people who live on the edges.”

“Not just because I’m black but because [of] my lived experience as a person in poverty, living paycheck to paycheck. Coming home and the phone not working. Coming home and the electricity is not always on, coming home and sometimes being hungry with no food coming that night.

“That experience … is now one of the reasons why I fight the way I do for people living in tough communities. I don’t really care whether you’re a white person in rural South Carolina or whether you are someone living on the border in Texas, a Hispanic, or someone living … in one of the inner cities and you’re black,” he said.

Every day, he asks himself, is the American dream real for him? “And then I put myself in those different shoes so that I know that the answer is yes. And that’s my responsibility.”

Scott admits he struggled in high school but his life took a turn for the better when he met John Moniz — an Air Force veteran who owned the Chick-fil-A restaurant across from the movie theater where Scott worked as a high schooler. Moniz became an instant mentor.

Scott attended college, ran and won a seat on the Charleston County Council, lost a state Senate seat, briefly considered becoming a minister, and eventually won a state House seat in 2008. He toyed with the idea of running for lieutenant governor in 2010 only to change his mind and run and win the House seat in the same congressional district where the Civil War began.

Two years later then-South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley appointed him to replace retiring Sen. Jim DeMint, making him the first black US senator from South Carolina. He ran and won the seat for the full term in 2016 and is seeking reelection to the Senate this year. In 2019, he said this would be his last run for the Senate office.

His longtime friend and fellow conservative Maurice Washington — the first black chair of the Charleston County Republican Party — said that if Scott ran for president he would bring a more worldly perspective to the White House.

“He has seen the best side and the worst side of America and he could speak to that with authority and experience,” said Washington.

“And the fact that he brings such a grassroots background into politics starting at a county council level, then to the state House level, then to House and Senate, that’s a pretty impressive resume. He’s the full package: clear-eyed, clear head, likable guy, scandal-free. I think at the right moment, he would make an excellent presidential candidate. More importantly, he would make an excellent president.”

Scott now sees himself as a mentor — like John Moniz was to him — for other young people with untapped potential.

“My mission statement is to positively impact the lives of a billion people with a message of open opportunity,” Scott said.
