Mitchell v. Helms: Implications for Vouchers.
Gittins, Naomi E., Ed.
Inquiry & Analysis, Dec 2000
This issue deals with the Supreme Court's recent decision in "Mitchell v. Helms" that is viewed by many as additional legal fire power for voucher proponents in the battle over the constitutionality of such programs. The discussion attempts to sort out how the High Court's decision may affect the future of voucher programs. Specifically, the Court clearly rejected the respondent's position that it is unconstitutional to divert direct aid to religious purposes. Other articles deal with the premature announcement that vouchers help African-American students, whether schools can discipline students for their Web sites, and whether the Boy Scouts should be allowed access to school facilities.
