Abstract:     
This article emphasizes the threat to religious freedom and religious liberty imposed by school vouchers. The majority of private schools in the United States are associated with religious organizations. By discussing the role of separation of religion and state in the Jeffersonian era, the history of Roger Williams and three modern Supreme Court cases, this article argues that publically funded school vouchers violate the separation of religion and state and thus pose a threat to education, religion, and people of faith.
