Professor Michael Helfand Presents "Religious Schools and Choice after Carson v. Makin" -- Manhattan Institute
Professor Michael A. Helfand presented "Religious Schools and Choice after Carson v. Makin" for a Manhattan Institute panel on December 2. The panelists addressed the impacts of the Supreme Court case Carson v. Makin on religious schools and educational pluralism.
Via the Manhattan Institute:
On December 8, the U.S. Supreme Court will hear oral arguments in Carson v. Makin, whose outcome will determine whether states can legally prohibit recipients of government private-school tuition assistance from attending religious or sectarian schools. While this case addresses a specific Maine state tuition assistance program, the Court's decision may set a precedent for the legal treatment of religious schools nationally.
Carson is the latest in a succession of major supreme court cases at the junction of religious liberty and educational choice, now with the potential to build upon precedents from the 2020 case Espinoza v. Montana decision.
