In today’s edition of The Heartland Daily Podcast, Managing Editor of School Reform News Heather Kays speaks to Dick Komer, Senior Attorney at The Institute for Justice. Komer has litigated on behalf of parents and children in many school choice cases, including the recent victory for North Carolina’s Opportunity Scholarship Program.
Kays and Komer discuss a recent case in Douglas County, Colorado, in which the state supreme court ruled against a school voucher program. They also talk about the history of state Blaine amendments, which teachers unions and their allies frequently use to attack parental choice programs.
