The case, which has drawn intense interest from the Trump administration, could have major implications for the use of public dollars to pay for religious schools. At the White House, Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany said that the ruling removes “one of the biggest obstacles” to better educational opportunities, preventing states from hiding behind rules “motivated by insidious bias against Catholics.”
President Donald Trump on Tuesday night tweeted that “Today’s SCOTUS ruling is a historic win for families who want SCHOOL CHOICE NOW!
Teachers unions, however, said the ruling will hurt students by siphoning funds from public schools. American Federation of Teachers President Randi Weingarten called the ruling a “seismic shock that threatens both public education and religious liberty.”
