The U.S. Supreme Court has ruled that Arizona's pioneering school choice tax credits--which have already passed constitutional muster in the state supreme court--can be challenged in federal court as well, according to an article in the September issue of School Reform News. The decision is significant in that it extends federal judicial review over state tax matters usually reserved to the states themselves.

The September issue also reports on the annual conventions of the National Education Association and American Federation of Teachers, where both groups voiced support for U.S. Senator John Kerry's bid for president ... and released membership figures that show minimal growth over last year.

Also in this issue: No Child Left Behind, sexual misconduct and corruption in public schools, renewed funding for DC vouchers, a court decision rejecting Colorado vouchers, the Pledge of Allegiance, The Friedman Report, value-added accountability, the productivity of U.S. education, and more.

This issue's featured interview is with Gilbert T. Sewall, director of the American Textbook Council and outspoken critic of how history and civics are taught in U.S. classrooms.
