  1. The pending New Jersey Opportunity Scholarship Act (NJOSA)reserves the majority of voucher aid for students currently enrolled in public schools. Note the following:Schools receiving federal money have a religious exemption from Title VII employment discrimination. Section 702 exempts religious entities from discrimination “connected with the carrying on by such corporation, association, educational institution,
    or society of its activities.” 42 U.S.C 2000e-1 (LEXIS through 2011). Private schools that do not accept state aid are not state actors and enjoy first amendment freedom of association and expression. See Dale v. Boy Scouts of America, 530 U.S. 640 (2000) (New Jersey
    cannot force Boy Scouts to accept gay person). A yeshiva is a non-diverse association of coreligionist, the mission of which is the study and observance of all matters of religious practice. This claim will protect yeshivas from discrimination law. On the other hand Dale will no longer protect a yeshiva from application of state discrimination law once it accepts state voucher money. There is no religious exclusion in the NJOSA.

    Also the NJOSA requires students to take the High School Proficiency Assessment (HSPA). Yeshivas receiving voucher aid will have to initiate authentic programs of English education, teach to the stateʼs core curriculum, and will be accountable for the quality and content of its mathematics, language arts and science courses.

    People have to determine the wisdom of accepting vouchers as “government largesse brings government regulation.” Lee v. Weisman, 505 U.S. 577, 608, (1992) (Blackmun,J., concurring). When “government aid goes up, so does reliance on it; the only thinglikely to go down is independence.” Zelman, 536 at 715 (Souter, J. dissenting).
