The Colorado Supreme Court ruled this morning that the voucher program in Douglas County violates the state’s Constitution.
Education Next’s legal beat columnists Martha Derthick and Josh Dunn wrote about the case as it worked its way through lower courts in Colorado, noting that a state supreme court ruling against the vouchers on Blaine Amendment grounds could open the way for a challenge to Blaine Amendments before the U.S. Supreme Court.
