Would higher Colorado taxes make for better schools?
Does more alimony make for a better ex-wife?
In last month’s Supreme Court decision in State v Lobato, four justices ruled that the Colorado school finance system provides a “thorough and uniform” education for all Colorado children, and also allows “local control” of instructional content by local school boards. Both conditions are required by the Colorado Constitution.
Two justices offered dissenting opinions, however, claiming that our Colorado school system does not, in fact, offer a “thorough and uniform” education.
