Indiana's Supreme Court Unanimously Upholds Voucher Program

USA Today has the story here. The full decision can be read here.

I do not have any opinion on the constitutional merits of the Indiana Supreme Court's ruling, but would just note that an obvious consequence of the ruling will be to transfer funds from ailing public schools to private schools, many (if not most) of which are church-affiliated. As a secularist, I find this redirection of public dollars to religious organizations troubling. But then, I'm also troubled that churches are exempt from paying property taxes.
