The Supreme Court in a 5-4 decision Tuesday ruled that a Montana tax credit program directing money to private schools cannot exclude religious schools.

The decision, written by Chief Justice John Roberts and backed by the conservative-appointed wing of the court, sided with mothers of Christian school students who wanted to use the funds to send their children to religious schools.

“A State need not subsidize private education. But once a State decides to do so, it cannot disqualify some private schools solely because they are religious,” Roberts wrote in the majority opinion that was joined by Justices Clarence Thomas, Samuel Alito, Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh.

The four liberal justices dissented.
