Jeff Jacoby has an interesting response to the entirely predictable ruling in Parker v. Hurley.

I’ve written about similar matters here and here.

To those who follow this matter closely, what is likely to happen on appeal?

As it stands, the decision seems to be another argument for school vouchers.


I think the law is pretty settled. Parents should perhaps be offered the opportunity to opt out, but that is a matter of "grace" on the part of school authorities, rather than a parental right. See the two pieces I wrote for TAE Online.

Thanks, Joe. I should have looked at your pieces first.
