The U.S. Supreme Court has agreed to hear arguments in a case about whether parents in Maine can receive state tuition assistance to enroll their children in private religious schools.

In an order list released Friday, the Supreme Court agreed to hear arguments in the case of David Carson et al. v. A. Pender Makin, the latter being sued in her capacity as commissioner of the Maine Department of Education.

At issue is a group of parents who oppose a state regulation that allows for tuition assistance only if a private school is “nonsectarian in accordance with the First Amendment of the United States Constitution.”
