COLORADO SUPREME COURT STRIKES DOWN PROGRAM DESIGNED TO SUPPORT PARENTS IN CHOOSING THE BEST EDUCATION FOR THEIR CHILDREN

DENVER—The Colorado Supreme Court today ruled against a Douglas County Board of Education program that allowed 500 students from the Douglas County School District to use state funds to help pay tuition at participating private schools of their choice.

“We are disappointed in the Court’s ruling because it means that school districts now have one fewer tool to support parents in choosing the education that best fits their children’s needs,” said Colorado Attorney General Cynthia H. Coffman. “This ruling harms Colorado’s children, who deserve every opportunity to reach their full potential regardless of school setting or family income.”
