Espinoza SCOTUS Ruling Opens Doors for More Educational Opportunity

Jun 30, 2020 by AFP

INDIANAPOLIS, IN – Following the Supreme Court’s ruling in Espinoza v. Montana Department of Revenue, Americans for Prosperity-Indiana State Director Michael Chartier issued the following statement:

“The U.S. Supreme Court ruling in Espinoza v. Montana Department of Revenue clears the way for thousands of families across the country to have access to life-changing educational opportunities beyond the schools to which they are assigned by the government based on where they live.

“The Indiana Supreme Court declared our private school choice programs constitutional in 2013, meaning tens of thousands of Hoosier families have had access to options that meet their needs since then. We are hopeful that Espinoza will open up doors for students across the United States, and we will continue our work advocating for educational freedom for all families.

“The Court wrote in its opinion that ‘[a] State need not subsidize private education. But once a State decides to do so, it cannot disqualify some private schools solely because they are religious.’ This ruling upholds one of our most critical freedoms as Americans, and we celebrate the outcome of this case.”

Background:

Last year, Americans for Prosperity and yes. every kid. filed an amicus brief with the United States Supreme Court in support of those families. Today, the court ruled in a way that guarantees those families equal access to an education that meets the child’s needs.
