Abstract

This article examines state constitutional provisions relating to publicly-funded voucher programs and determines their susceptibility to non-religious-based arguments. This article organizes the provisions relating to publicly-funded voucher programs into three categories: (1) “uniformity provisions,” which require states to provide a uniform system of public schools; (2) “local control provisions,” which delegate the authority to control public schools to local entities; and (3) “funding provisions,” which contain language that prohibits states from funding non-public schools.
