Supreme Court Rules Maine Tuition Program Violates First Amendment for Excluding Religious Schools

The Supreme Court ruled 6-3 Tuesday that a Maine tuition assistance program violated the First Amendment’s Free Exercise Clause for excluding religious schools from eligibility. The program provides tuition assistance for students without a local public school to attend private institutions – as long as the funding is not used for religious or “sectarian” teaching. 

So now states can’t discriminate against religious-based private schools when it comes to voucher programs. That’s a huge win for conservatives.
