Lastly a win for households in Maine. As a lot of you might be conscious, the U.S. Supreme Court docket dominated that not granting subsidies to households that enroll their youngsters in Christian colleges is unconstitutional. I congratulate the Carsons for taking this stand, which didn’t essentially assist their youngsters, however actually will likely be a blessing to Maine households.
We want extra residents to take a stand for our constitutional rights. For years, households who wished their youngsters to have an training that supported their religion had been discriminated towards so households needed to pay their taxes after which pay tuition.
I’m disenchanted within the remarks by our legal professional normal. The cash that will likely be used to pay tuition to non secular colleges comes primarily from mother and father’ cash paid into the system from their property and different taxes.
Why is it that these of us of religion are accused of being illiberal, discriminatory and bigots once we are literally being discriminated towards? Dad and mom ought to have the precise to coach their youngsters in keeping with their beliefs and values.
I believe most personal Christian colleges present an training that far surpasses public training. Sometimes lessons are smaller and expectations are increased. Character constructing is of nice significance. Habits within the classroom is predicted to be of the very best caliber and if not, there are penalties.
I used to be a public college instructor for 26 years and cherished my job. I loved educating college students of all educational ranges. The neighborhood that I taught in was great and really supportive of the college. Even so, I believe it’s fallacious to not give mother and father the precise to decide on the place they need their youngsters to go to highschool. Public college doesn’t work for all households. Dad and mom do know what’s greatest for his or her youngsters and the establishment that may greatest match their household values.
