Court: Tax Break For Private Ed OK

Item: Supreme Court upholds Arizona’s tax break for private education/Tribune Washington Bureau

More Info: The Supreme Court’s conservative majority opened the door for new state support for religious schools, ruling that special tax credits that pay for children to go to church schools cannot be challenged by dissenting taxpayers. The 5-4 decision is a major win for those who support the school choice movement and aid to parochial schools, and a potentially far-reaching loss for defenders of the separation of church and state.

Question: Should states provide tax breaks for private education?
