Beyond "Cain v. Horne": Comment on Tim Keller's "The National Implications of 'Cain v. Horne'"
Harmon, Corinne
Journal of School Choice, v4 n2 p236-241 2010
This commentary is in response to Tim Keller's article "The National Implications of 'Cain v. Horne.'" In his analysis, Keller asserts that the Arizona Supreme Court wrongfully struck down a voucher program for students with special needs by characterizing the voucher as aid to schools rather than aid to students. In this response to Keller, I discuss why his assessment is incorrect. I also address the broader issue of a child's rights according to the Individuals with Disabilities Act and how those rights are essentially lost when parents choose a private school for their children, a result states should not facilitate with public money in the form of a voucher.
