Tilton V. Richardson; The Search for Sectarianism in Education.
Wilson, Charles H., Jr.
Tilton versus Richardson, the Connecticut Colleges' case, was the first explicit test of the constitutional propriety of federal grants to church related colleges and universities. Specifically the case involved the constitutionality of granting federal funds under the Higher Education Facilities Act to 4 church related colleges in Connecticut. This report presents an interpretation of the June 28, 1971 Supreme Court decision that went 5 to 4 in favor of the colleges. Included are a summary of the legal history that constitutes the background for the June 28 decision, a critical analysis of the decision itself, and an examination of the implications for church related colleges.
