In Agostini v. Felton the Supreme Court reversed its 1985 decision in Aguilar v. Felton by holding that a federally funded program providing supplemental, remedial instruction to disadvantaged children on a neutral basis is valid under the Establishment Clause even when the instruction is given on the premises of sectarian schools by government employees as long as the program contains safeguards such as those present in New York City's Title I program. Thus, the twelveyear- old permanent injunction entered in Aguilar against New York City's Title I program was vacated.
