The Illinois Senate is scheduled to vote today on a school voucher bill (SB 1932) that would allow taxpayer-supported public school funds to be diverted to religious and other private schools. Vashti McCollum, who thought she won that constitutional battle more than 60 years ago, must be spinning in her grave. Her story, the subject of this week's culture column and of the documentary The Lord Is Not on Trial Here Today—which will be shown at 1:30 PM Sunday at the Evanston Public Library as part of Evanston's Talking Pictures Film Festival—couldn't be more current.
