Montana strips benefits from disabled preschooler

State agency erroneously thinks disability benefits
for hearing-impaired child would be unconstitutional

HELENA, Mont. — Alliance Defending Freedom attorneys filed a complaint Friday with the Montana Superintendent of Public Instruction on behalf of a hearing-impaired preschooler denied disability benefits for tuition payments because her parents chose to enroll her in a Columbus faith-based preschool. The state allows the benefits to be used for tuition at private schools but singles out religious students and parents for exclusion if they attend a faith-based school.
