Nobody should stop you from sending your child to the school that’s best suited to your family.
Every child deserves a high-quality education, no matter how much money their parents make. School choice programs open the doors of opportunity for children to experience the transformative power of learning right here, right now. The Liberty Justice Center represents parents and reform advocates in legal cases that expand educational freedom. We work to ensure every child has access to a great education and can attend a school that is the right fit for them and regularly represent families across the country who face obstacles to exercising educational choice.
In June 2020, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled in Espinoza v. Montana Department of Revenue that parents can use publicly funded vouchers to send their children to religious-based institutions. Justice Alito’s agreement with the decision mentioned the argument made by Liberty Justice Center in its amicus brief filed on behalf of the American Federation for Children.
The Espinoza ruling has not opened up school choice for everyone. In Tennessee, South Carolina, and North Carolina, politicians and union-like organizations seek to prevent or halt scholarship programs for children from low-income families.
Attorneys from the Liberty Justice Center are representing school leaders and families to protect these critical programs.
