Taxpayers for Public Education v. Douglas County School District (2017)

This Colorado Supreme Court amicus brief was filed on October 25, 2017 in support of a challenge to school vouchers. After the Trinity Lutheran case was decided this case was brought back for reconsideration. It focused on a program that provided certain students funding to offset tuition at participating private schools.

FFRF’s brief argued that the tax dollars should not go to benefit religion. It also argues that the No Aid Clause in the Colorado Constitution is there to protect religious freedom for all by avoiding preferential treatment for one specific religion.
