Professor Rick Duncan's article Why School Choice is Necessary for Religious Liberty and Freedom of Belief, has been published in the Case Western Reserve Law Review. 

Read an excerpt from the abstract below:

To end this Article where it began, the letter and spirit of the First Amendment deeply values freedom of religion, thought, and belief formation. If these values are to survive in our deeply divided, pluralistic Nation, parents must be free to choose an appropriate education for their children, without having to sacrifice the benefit of public funding of education. To put it succinctly, educational funds should be directed to children and their parents, not to strictly secular government schools. School choice is the civil rights and civil liberties issue of this present age, and one way or another—either in the courts or in the states—we need to get there.
