Catholic Schools in the U.S.A.?

Do any American States have a seperate Catholic School System that is funded by the tax payer??

In some parts of Canada, this sytem exists, and I wondered if does or did in any parts of the US

Funding comes from property taxes.

No, the reasons why we don't go back to our founding as a nation. However, if a student receives an education grant/voucher the student may use it at a religious affil. school (assuming they are acredited and have the qualifying program).

Louisiana has no discernable public school system.* Actually, they have one but it does a poor job of providing an education.* They compliment this with no meaningful taxes to fund public schools.* So, typical parents with a normal income flow pay for their children to go to a private school.* The Catholic school system is very strong and gets a lot of students.* They also greatly reduce tuition to parishioners (that donate enough tax deductible dollars directly to the parish).* Other religious denominations also participate to the best of their ability.

Their original laws and many of their social systems are based on the French legal code in place when first settled (by Europeans) with an influx of deported French Canadians in the 1700's.

Generally no.* There have been some efforts, in Florida for example, to provide vouchers to students who prefer to attend private school.* The voucher sends the same dollars to the private school that would have gone to the public school.* But, this is very limited and recently declared unconstitutional in most areas where it was tried.* So, again, generally there is no funding of private schools out of tax dollars.
