Nevada Fights Back Against ACLU Lawsuit Over State’s School Choice Program.

The AP (10/19, Rindells) reports that the Nevada Attorney General’s Office filed a motion asking a judge to dismiss an ACLU lawsuit that aims to dismantle the state’s school choice program. The suit alleges that that the state’s Education Savings Accounts program violates the state constitution’s ban of using public funds for sectarian purposes. The attorney general argues in defense of the program that it does not provide funds to sectarian institutions but rather to parents, who are free to choose, and states that it would be unjust to deny families who prefer religious schools access to public assistance. The next court hearing on this issue is scheduled for Nov. 25.
