Arizona Christian School Tuition Organization v. Winn

Oral Argument November 3, 2010

Arizona created a unique system of funding religious instruction by allowing state-certified and state-supervised non-profits that exist for no other purpose to distribute taxpayer funds obtained through tax credits for student scholarships. A substantial portion of these taxpayer funds are distributed on the basis of religious criteria for use in religious schools. The Supreme Court will decide if this is violation of the separation of church and state.
