State Aid to Nonpublic Schools: An Analysis of Recent Court Decisions. A Report. Research Reports in Educational Administration. Special Report: Vol. II, No. 5.
This report summarizes and analyzes two court decisions relating to State aid to nonpublic schools. In a Pennsylvania case, a Federal district court allowed public tax money to be used to supplement nonpublic school teachers' salaries. In the other case, that of Rhode Island, the Federal court ruled the State law to supplement private school teachers' salaries unconstitutional and in violation of the Establishment Clause of the First Amendment of the United States Constitution. After analyzing these cases, the author suggests that only a United States Supreme Court decision can clear up the uncertainty surrounding State supplements to nonpublic school teachers' salaries.
