DENVER - Attorney General John Suthers today announced that the Denver District Court has dismissed the lawsuit challenging the adequacy of the State’s public school funding.

“The district court flatly rejected the argument that the current level of school funding in Colorado is unconstitutional,” said Suthers. “This decision is a victory for local control and for the idea that it is the responsibility of elected officials – not the courts - to decide how we fund public education.”
