The U.S. Supreme Court last month made a stand for school choice and religious liberty. Yet while Michigan choice proponents can share in that victory from afar, families here aren’t likely to see any tangible change.

The ruling importantly will go a long way to ridding the country of the bigotry of Blaine amendments, anti-Catholic relics from the 19th century that still exist in 37 states in varying degrees. The 5-4 decision argued that states may not strike down school choice programs only because they allow parents to choose a faith-based school.
