New Hampshire Supreme Court Upholds Law Providing Tax Credits for Religious Schools
New Hampshire's Supreme Court upheld the state's tax credit program that allows for funds to go to religious schools.
In an opinion delivered last week, the court unanimously overturned a lower court ruling regarding the tax credit.
The court concluded that the plaintiffs lacked standing on the tax credit, having failed to sufficiently argue that the credit caused them undue injury or harm.

Jim, you do know abuse is prevalent within the atheistic system too right? I would suggest leaving those four walls to do some kind of ministry, I don't know, homeless shelter or something.

An example of this would be a requirement to adhere to a state Civil Rights law, in exchange for the subsidy, this would conflict with a Christian school that has mandatory religious requirements for admission, or does not allow its students to opt out of attending religious services. Even though a school may accept no government money, it still must adhere to the state education curriculum, student academic performance standards, and state-mandated standardized testing scores (if any). It is also subject to standard inspection by government regulators for in-classroom teaching quality and teacher qualifications, possibly including visiting classes. Not accepting government money avoids government management of a Christian school, but does not remove governmental oversight.
