A new anti-voucher majority on a suburban Denver school board voted this week to eliminate a program that helps public school students attend secular and religious schools with taxpayer-funded vouchers. The Douglas County school board ended the voucher program, which sparked litigation that reached the Supreme Court and reflected the national debate over school choice. The board also voted to end a court case that could have established clear rules on how voucher programs can treat religious schools. The new, anti-voucher board members were helped into office by campaign contributions from a teachers union.
