Parental choice policies aren't about religion, even though some opponents would prefer to have the general public believe otherwise. As noted in Zelman, school choice laws do not sponsor religion because it is parents -- not the state -- who choose where the educational dollars are directed. As a Catholic, I believe parents are the primary educators of their children and that they have a right to control their children's education. That's why I support school choice policies. Importantly, though, I support these policies just as much if the parents (and children) are Catholic, as if they are not.
This article, written by N. Aaron Troodler, Esq., talks about the importance school choice policies can have for Jewish families who want their children educated in the faith. While the author writes of his excitement about the monumental decision levied by the Indiana Supreme Court, he also notes that school choice supporters must continue to be active. He writes, "The Indiana Supreme Court’s decision to uphold the state’s voucher program was a huge victory for school choice advocates and a reminder that there are indeed legal and constitutional ways for government to provide aid to private school parents. However, we would be naïve to expect that government will help yeshiva parents if we do not actively ask and advocate for that assistance."
