Good news on the voucher front

Posted By on Mon, Nov 27, 2006 at 6:40 PM

Bad news, as our correspondent puts it, for "UA tools."

WASHINGTON - November 27 - Americans United for Separation of Church and State today applauded the Supreme Court’s refusal to hear an appeal of a case from Maine that sought to force local education officials to provide tax support for private religious schools.

Without comment, the high court today declined to hear the case Anderson v. Durham School Department.

“This is yet another sign that the Supreme Court is not interested in forcing any state or jurisdiction to adopt voucher programs,” said Barry W. Lynn, executive director of Americans United. “It is time for the groups that have pursued this misguided legal strategy to give up.”
