    Maine's program provides public funds for tuition at private high schools of a family's choice in sparsely populated areas lacking public secondary schools. Maine required eligible schools to be "nonsectarian." The plaintiffs sought taxpayer dollars to send their children to two Christian schools that integrate religion into their classrooms and maintain policies against gay and transgender students and staff.
    ...
    [Chief Justice John Roberts, who wrote the 6-3 majority opinion] said the court previously decided that states need not subsidize private education, but because Maine chose to do so it cannot disqualify religious schools. Maine has other options, Roberts added, including expanding its public school system.
    ...
    The First Amendment prohibits government endorsement of any particular religion in what is called the "establishment clause." The liberal justices said the ruling forces states to fund religious education despite establishment clause concerns.

Should airlines face federal penalties for non-weather related flight cancellations?

493 votes, 53 comments

Context: Airline executives meet with transportation secretary over flight cancellations.

HIGHLIGHTED COMMENTS

Yes - When I buy an airline ticket I am entering into an agreement with the airline to provide a service. Unfortunately I then lose all of my power in this agreement as the airline can unilaterally change the service they provide by delaying my flight. There are no repercussions for the airline other than possibly bad PR, but it can cost me significantly - trapped in an airport for hours to days, missing major vacation/work/family events, and very high mental stress. Airlines are interstate businesses, so federal penalties seem appropriate to disincentivize airlines from abusing their power.


No - If they don't have enough pilots to get these flights off the ground what would you propose they do? If the government tries to step in and force the...



Unsure - If the delays are due to predictable issues, such as overbooking or lack of staff, ...
