Colo. school vouchers ruling appealed

CASTLE ROCK — The American Civil Liberties Union of Colorado has filed a petition asking the Colorado Supreme Court to overturn a state appeals court ruling that found the Douglas County schools’ voucher program did not violate the state constitution.

The ACLU said Thursday the program, called the Choice Scholarship Program, violates the state constitution because it provides money to religious schools.

According to the Denver Post, the school district says the ruling was a huge victory for the students and parents of Douglas County.

The Douglas County program offered up to 500 students $4,575 in state funds for tuition at private schools, including religious schools.
