Parochiaid Brief
Filed in High Court

brief on behalf of Orthodox
lay and rabbinical organiza-
tions has been filed in the
U. S. Supreme Court by the
National Jewish Commission
on Law and Public Affairs
(COLPA) in support of feder-
al payments for remedial
reading teachers in religious-
ly sponsored schools.
A number of Jewish com-
munity relations agencies
have filed a brief in opposi-
tion to such payments.
The case involves the issue
of whether federal funds un-
der Title I of the Elementary
and Secondary Education Act
may be used to pay such
teachers for special remedial
classes in the private schools.
The state of Missouri re-
fused to assign remedial
reading teachers to such
schools on grounds this would
violate the First Amendment
to the federal constitution. A
lawsuit opposing the state's
position was brought by par-
ents of parochial school stu-
dents in Missouri.
