Last Week's Church-State Case--Skeel

For those who might be interested, here is a little column I wrote on an important new church-state case (Arizona Christian School Tuition Organization v. Winn) that was argued in the Supreme Court last week. One interesting dimension of the case that I wasn’t able to squeeze into the column was the Obama administration’s stance: the administration came out squarely in favor of the Arizona program, supporting it both in an amicus brief and at the argument. This put the administration on the opposite side as the teacher’s unions, suggesting that the administration is serious about school reform. This may be one of the issues on which President Obama may find common ground with Republicans in the wake of last week’s election results.

As an Arizonan I support the program and have from the beginning. School reform must always include school choice - funny how that is a blind spot for the 'pro-choice' crowd.
