Supremes to Hear Cleveland Voucher Case Wednesday- I don't think they'll overturn this one. Various government programs pay college tuition at religious colleges and those haven't been challenged. The 1995 Rosenburger vs. University of Virginia case, where a Christian campus magazine won funding on equal footing with secular campus groups, would lead me to think that O'Connor and Kennedy would not block aid to parents for schools merely because of their religious nature. The liberal critique is that there aren't enough non-Catholic options for the Cleveland vouchers. I think "use the voucher wherever you can" would fit O'Connor better than requiring a full theological and ideological spectrum of private schools before vouchers can be implemented; there will always be one kid whose world-view doesn't fit the available schools for the liberals to sue with.
