Extractions: Today's Catholic Schools Foreword Executive Summary Introduction Shifting Lines in the Legal Sands ... Appendix: Overview of Supreme Court Jurisprudence on Public Aid to Private Schools On June 28, as this report was going to press, the United States Supreme Court decided an important and long-awaited First Amendment case clarifying the extent to which public dollars can assist students in parochial schools. This topic has triggered epic battles in courtrooms and legislative chambers for some seventy-five years, and, with such hot issues as the constitutionality of school vouchers much with us today, the arguments show no sign of abating. By a 6-3 margin, the Court ruled in Mitchell v. Helms The Mitchell Mitchell Thus the policy terrain on which Mitchell has landed is bumpy and uneven as one moves from place to place. We do not, however, expect the policy debate to end anytime soon. It may even intensify. The expected retirement of three and perhaps four Supreme Court justices during the next presidential administration also means that the direction of the Court in these (and other) contentious cases could dramatically shift. Much is unsettled.

Projects supported by the program connect directly with school and district improvement plans and educational goals.

Extractions: Paul Moreno Although many people believe they know exactly what Dr. John Silber thinks, his thoughts are always filtered by liberal reporters. It is rare for him to be able to speak directly to the citizens. Whether you agree with him or not, he will certainly make you think. Mass. News: Is public education finished in Massachusetts? Silber: No. I believe the ideal structure is a system of public education. The purpose of vouchers and the purpose of charter schools should be to create competition that will result in the improvement of the public schools. Vouchers could offer the opportunity of giving children the choice of attending private schools or parochial schools. Thats very unlikely in the state of Massachusetts, though not in other states, because of our constitutional prohibitions against the mixture of church and state. Those barriers are so high in Massachusetts that it will be difficult to work that out. The other difficulty with vouchers is that there are limited numbers of schools to which children can go. If they go to a private schoolI mean a non-religious private schoolor to a school in a different community, how are they going to get there? Theres no public busing thats going to pick them up and take them there. So the children who will be beneficiaries of such a program are children whose parents are better off than the other parents. So its the most privileged children who are going to be further privileged by most voucher programs. Thats why I dont see the voucher program as a success except as it creates competition. And to the extent that we can create competition, to put the standard public schools on notice that they have to improve or theyre going to be in jeopardy, thats fine.

Religious institutions have long been key providers of emergency food. At the same time, many provide children safe havens in the form of summer, afterschool, before-school and early childhood programs, and homeless and domestic violence shelters. These efforts to keep children safe and nurtured can be greatly helped by use of the federal child nutrition programs, which can provide funds to religious institutions as well as other non-profits and public agencies to serve meals and snacks in many of the service programs that they are operating. Serving nutritious snacks and meals to low- income children can help share with parents the work of providing for the family's most basic needs. The food also acts as a magnet drawing children into a program allowing them to fully benefit from its services. The funds from the child nutrition programs can provide a stable funding source for many programs and free up program dollars that in turn can be used to improve services or increase the number of children being helped.

Elected officials and those active in state politics served as their parties' spokespeople in town-hall-style debates at which students asked the questions. Pairing off and representing their party's position on a wide range of issues were State Senators Brian Lees and Joan Menard; State Representative Peter Forman and State Senator Dianne Wilkerson; State Representative Michael Festa and Evan Slavitt, Esq.; Dan Daly and State Senator Marc Pacheco; and former U.S. Representative Peter Torkildsen and State Senator Jarrett T.

HAMILTON, Ohio (CNN) President Bush signed a landmark education bill into law Tuesday, following through on a campaign pledge to reform the nation's public education system and establishing a system of new accountability measures for low-performing schools. The law, known as the "No Child Left Behind Act of 2001," provides greater spending flexibility for school districts and requires states to establish a system of tests to gauge student progress. Drafted as a broad rewrite of the 1965 Elementary and Secondary Education Act, it authorizes $26.5 billion in federal spending on education, up $4 billion from the last fiscal year. Its centerpiece is a regimen of state tests in reading and math for all students in grades three through eight, starting in the 2004-2005 school year. A year later, tests in science will begin. The tests are intended to identify schools that are failing to make gains toward student proficiency.
