AUGUSTA, ME – Governor Paul LePage is issuing the following statement on the Carson v. Makin U.S. Supreme Court decision:
“I applaud the Supreme Court’s decision today striking down Maine’s rules excluding religious schools from school choice voucher programs. It is time to let the parents decide their child’s future, not educational bureaucrats.
As I’ve said before, money should follow the student and we need to let parents decide. We must have the best opportunities for learning for all Maine children, whether they be public schools, charter schools, magnet schools, parochial schools, virtual schools, or home schooling.”
