Abstract: The issue of public funding of religious institutions in education is bound up with the establishment clause of the First Amendment. The Supreme Court has struggled through a variety of decisions to define what the appropriate level of relationship is between public schools and religion. Today, with voucher programs and Faith-Based Initiatives it is clear that the problem is still unresolved.
