This PFPS webinar will focus on the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision earlier this year in Espinoza v. Montana Department of Revenue, which upheld Montana’s tax credit voucher program and ruled that religious schools must be allowed to participate. The decision was a setback for private school voucher opponents but left many avenues available to challenge vouchers in the courts.
The panelists will draw from their extensive experience participating in, analyzing, and advising on litigation efforts to halt and roll back private school voucher programs.
