"The theory behind it is a very solid and noble theory," said Becky Callaway, principal of the lower school at Westminster Christian Academy in Watkinsville.
"Any time the government gives a credit to anyone, I am a little dubious.The flip side of that is, does the government have a foot in your door?"Westminster Christian Academy
offers a tuition assistance program, and its annual tuition ranges from $1,309 for pre-kindergarten to $4,169 for high school.Buhl Cummings, founder and headmaster of Athens Christian School
, agreed with Callaway
."It would be a very good thing for parents if there aren't any government controls involved," he
said.Athens Christian School boasts about 800 students in kindergarten through 12th grade.There is no scholarship program, but tuition ranges by grade level from $247 to $289 per month.The ruling upholds a program in inner-city Cleveland that gives mostly poor parents a tuition subsidy of up to $2,250 per child.The city has one of the worst-rated school systems in the nation.
