School Voucher Battle

By  | 

A Denver judge says he'll rule in a few weeks on the Colorado Education Association's challenge to the state's new school voucher law.

District Judge Joseph Meyer heard more than 2 1/2 hours of arguments Wednesday in a packed courtroom. The association is asking the judge to overturn the state's school voucher law. It says the law removes school districts' control over education and violates the constitution.

Arguments involved whether the state can force specific districts to offer vouchers and whether the state can tell districts how to conduct their programs.

The state's voucher system was the first written since the US Supreme Court upheld vouchers.
