A recent U.S. Supreme Court decision has breathed new life into school choice.
On Wednesday, a federal appeals court ordered the state of Vermont to allow students in religious schools to participate in a program that lets high school students earn college credits at the state’s expense. Juniors and seniors can enroll in two college classes for free—unless they go to a private religious school. A group of students and parents at Rice Memorial High School, run by the Catholic Diocese of Burlington, lost a lawsuit against the state in federal court last month and appealed.
