On Monday, the Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS) dismissed a lawsuit challenging Arizona’s provision of tax credits for contributions to private-schools – even religious schools. The 5-4 decision held that opponents of the 14-year-old program lacked legal “standing” to challenge the program as taxpayers objecting to a government spending program.
This is a great victory on two fronts. First, it protects the religious liberty of all Americans from attacks claiming unconstitutional promotion of religion on tuition tax credit programs. Second, the Court upheld the rights of parents to decide who teaches their children and where they are taught.
