On June 2, the US Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit ruled that Vermont cannot refuse to allow religious schools to participate in a tuition program open to other private schools.
According to the Alliance Defending Freedom, which represented religious students and schools in their lawsuit against state officials, "The state’s Town Tuition Program provides educational vouchers for students who live in towns that lack public schools. Towns that pay tuition for their students instead of maintaining a public high school are called 'sending towns,' and they directly provide tuition on behalf of their students to any private school that the family chooses. Students may use this benefit at any public school or secular private school, but the towns denied the benefit to students who chose religious private high schools."
