Hostility or Neutrality? Faith Based Schools and Tax-Funded Tuition: A GI Bill for Kids.
Parker, Allan; Trotter, R. Clayton
Texas Education Review, v1 n1 p47-55 Spr 2000
Questions the constitutionality of allowing faith based private schools to compete for voucher funds, suggesting that the current system's claim of religious neutrality is false, with secular education imposing its own values. Notes that the only constitutional remedy for this is to allow parents to choose the environment within which their children will be educated. (SM)
