Espinoza v. Montana Department of Revenue Oral Arguments Begin Today

Today, the U.S. Supreme Court begins hearing oral arguments in a landmark school choice case, Espinoza v. Montana Department of Revenue. The case focuses on the constitutionality of school vouchers for use at religious schools, and the outcome will have a national impact.

In November, CEC signed onto a brief in support of the plaintiff in the case, arguing that private school vouchers strip students with exceptionalities of their rights and legal recourse under federal laws such as the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA). The brief notes that private schools often fail to ensure these rights and “while limited services may be available to students in some private schools, they are at best incomplete and thinly funded.”
