July 2, 2021 (prerecorded 6/21): Many small Vermont towns don't operate a school or only offer classes up to a certain grade, such as middle school. To provide local students with a full pre-K - 12 education, these towns use a tuition, or voucher, system. These vouchers allow parents to send their students to other schools. Sometimes public, sometimes private. A series of court cases, however, seek to open the path for public dollars to fund private religious schools or programming. Derek W. Black, author and professor of law at South Carolina School of Law, dives into what the court cases mean for Vermont.
