Cheque-ensino travado no Arizona

Queriam dinheiro do Estado para financiar o ensino da religião? Os tribunais não deixam:
  • «The Arizona high court, ruling unanimously, said the voucher subsidies violate a provision of the Arizona Constitution barring tax funding of religious and other private schools.

    (...)

    Arizona is one of 37 states with strong constitutional provisions that bar the diversion of tax funding to religious schools. Other state courts have ruled against school vouchers in the past, and more may do so in the future.» (Americans United)

Outras derrotas americanas do cheque-ensino: Florida (nos tribunais) e Utah (em referendo).
