Not Another School Funding Trial

In addition to the Lobato trial, Colorado taxpayers will also be interested in another suit being argued today in Denver District Court. The Douglas County School Board’s pilot voucher plan has been challenged by a local group of DougCo residents called Taxpayers for Public Education, the ACLU and Americans United for Separation of Church & State.  

EdNewsColorado has pretty thorough coverage of the issue here:

The Taxpayers for Public Education have their own well-updated website: http://www.taxpayersforpublice…

The ACLU webpage on the case includes PDFs of all their legal documents (but not the defendants’)

They also have a page giving some background on vouchers and citing the relevant sections of the state constitution:

They are also tweeting the hearing using the moderately clever tag #nopay4pray

And to add some partisan flavor to the issue, the DougCo GOP sent an email asking people to pack the courthouse:
