Extractions: Before the end of June, the Supreme Court will decide a widely anticipated First Amendment case, Mitchell vs. Helms, which will clarify the limits on public aid to parochial schools. This topic has triggered epic battles in courtrooms and legislative chambers for some 75 years, and, with such hot issues as the constitutionality of school vouchers still in the air, these fights show no sign of easing. The case also has implications for the $13.5 billion Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) that Congress is presently reauthorizing and which funds innumerable programs that benefit students in private, frequently religious, schools, as well as public school students. The specific issue in Mitchell is whether federal Chapter 2 funds (which are now included within Title VI of the ESEA) can be used by parochial schools in Jefferson Parish, La., to purchase computers, software and library books. Schools generally use these funds to buy technology and instructional materials, including library resources and software, to support programs for at-risk and gifted students and for miscellaneous school improvements. By law, private school students are eligible to participate equitably in obtaining "secular, neutral, and non-ideological services, materials, and equipment."
Extractions: Place an ad June 29, 2000 FREE PRESS NEWS and STAFF REPORTS WASHINGTON Taxpayer money can be used to buy computers and other instructional materials for religious schools, the Supreme Court ruled Wednesday as it lowered the figurative wall of separation between church and state. The 6-3 ruling was praised by supporters of private-school tuition vouchers government initiatives to help parents of children who do not attend public schools. "We parents in Michigan and families in Michigan ought to be excited because it reaffirms that the Supreme Court will uphold the education-reform initiative that we are pushing," said Greg McNeilly, spokesman for Kids First! Yes!, a group working to pass a constitutional amendment allowing school vouchers in Michigan. "This puts to rest many of the concerns that were being raised by constitutional-conspiracy theorists that vouchers were in some way unconstitutional," he said. Michigan voters will decide in November whether to amend the state constitution to allow state money a voucher to pay up to about $3,150 in tuition for private or parochial schools for children living in school districts where fewer than two-thirds of students graduate.

Extractions: Fax: The Taylor School District is poised to be the leader in education as the community prepares for the 21st Century. The school district is the largest governmental unit of its kind in the Downriver area of suburban Detroit. In Wayne County, the Taylor School District ranks fifth in student population. Operating Budget: The Taylor School District operates two high schools, three middle schools, 15 elementary schools, a Career Center and Alternative School (see below for locations and other information). The heart of a school district can be found in its curriculum: what it teaches and how it teaches. At the Taylor School District, this heart is defined by a comprehensive, aligned and articulated pre-K-12 curriculum that provides a clear direction for teachers and administrators. This curriculum includes all subjects taught, from pre-kindergarten through senior high advanced placement. It also includes such areas as special education, technology and school-to-work. To make this form of education work effectively, the district has implemented an active, progressive curriculum and instruction plan that not only reviews current offerings, but plants the seeds for tomorrow's classrooms. The plan then establishes the strategies and delivery systems that are compatible with district goals and the core curriculum.
Poor Kids Can Go To Private Schools WASHINGTON michigan came out the big winner Monday in a new national set up byan entrepreneur to help poor children go to private or parochial schools. http://www.freep.com/news/education/qfund29.htm
Extractions: Free Press Washington Staff WASHINGTON Michigan came out the big winner Monday in a new national scholarship program set up by an entrepreneur to help poor children go to private or parochial schools. But the Children's Scholarship Fund is just the type of program that some public-school advocates say threatens the future of public education. Of 35,000 four-year scholarships ranging from $600 to $1,600 annually, 3,750 totaling about $15 million will go to Michigan. About 50 percent will be granted to students in metro Detroit; 37 percent are earmarked for the Grand Rapids area. "This is fabulous news," said Anita Nelam, a member of the Detroit Partnership for Parental Choice, a coalition of Detroit ministers and others who want alternatives to Detroit Public Schools. "This is a tremendous opportunity for us to expand parental choice in the city." The competition could help improve Detroit Public Schools, she said.
Front Lines: Michigan Governor John Engler (RMI) praised the michigan Supreme Court's recent decision 362or 1993, certifies that charter schools are not parochial schools and that http://www.edexcellence.net/issuespl/state/mich/mich1.html
Extractions: 7/30/97: David Lazar wrote the following: Governor John Engler (R-MI) praised the Michigan Supreme Court's recent decision to give public school academies (charter schools) the same recognition and privileges as other public schools. The decision, which upheld Public Act 362 or 1993, certifies that charter schools are not parochial schools and that they are entitled to the leadership and general supervision of the State Board of Education just like other public schools. Calling the decision a "huge victory for students, their parents, and schools," Engler cited the fact that 12,400 students attended charter schools last year (the majority of whom being minorities) and that almost 8,000 students took part in the "schools of choice" option last year, choosing to attend a public school outside of their home district. "It affirms what we knew all alongthat charter schools are public schools offering a meaningful alternative for parents who are looking for more educational choices for their children," Engler said.

Extractions: Making Schools Work Better for All Children Following is the text of a leaflet sent home with school children from North Hill Elementary School in Rochester, Michigan in September, 1999: "People who support vouchers, tend not to know very much about vouchers." Jonathan Kozol A voucher is a way to redirect tax dollars from public education to private or parochial education. Vouchers are certificates given to individuals that, when redeemed, transfer public tax dollars from local, state and federal governments to schools. Most will only cover a portion of tuition costs and fees at private or parochial schools or transportation costs for a public school; the remaining costs must be covered by parents. Michigan's constitution prohibits the use of public funds for private or parochial education. To change the constitution a 2/3's vote in the House and Senate would be needed, or a public referendum could place such an issue on the election ballot. Where did the idea for vouchers come from?
Extractions: Supreme Courts Ruling Adds Further Fuel to the Voucher Debate On Wednesday, June 28, 2000, the Supreme Court ruled that taxpayer money can be used to provide computers and other instructional materials to parochial schools. The decision in the matter of Mitchell vs. Helms, which fell one vote shy of a majority opinion, has been lauded by voucher supporters as a key indication that the Supreme Court will uphold the legality of school vouchers, if such a case is presented for review. Speaking on CNNs legal program Burden of Proof, former Supreme Court clerk and legal expert Brett Kavanaugh inadvertently called Mitchell vs. Helms the voucher case and argued that the Supreme Court was simply ensuring that religious schools had the same liberty to participate in national educational initiatives on an equal basis with nonreligious schools. Mitchell vs. Helms was originally filed fifteen years ago by a group of Louisiana parents who claimed that a federal program violated the Constitution because it provided direct aid to religious schools through educational and instructional materials, including film strips, textbooks, and slide projectors. However, the case received renewed attention in the last few months by the Clinton administration, whose pledge to connect every schoolchild in the U.S. to the Internet was contingent upon the Supreme Courts willingness to broaden its interpretation of the establishment clause in the First Amendment.
