Colorado Supreme Court & School Funding: Case to Clear the Bench now overwhelming (Ben DeGrow on Face The State radio)
“Despite all the hoopla (much of it well-deserved) about the election results, let’s not lose focus on an easily overlooked issue that should factor into some of our important decisions for 2010 — namely, the Colorado Supreme Court delving into political questions of how our schools are funded in Lobato v State.
You now can listen to my recent 8-minute interview on this very topic with Brad Jones on Face The State Weekend edition.
Whether or not you get to listen, let me explain — no, let me sum up: The case for Clear The Bench Colorado is now overwhelming.”
Overwhelming, indeed. The Independence Institute’s expert analyst on Education Policy (and frequent online commentator) Ben DeGrow is part of the rising chorus of commentators (Mike Rosen’s Denver Post column Thursday, Mark Hillman’s excellent article Wednesday, and Vince Carroll’s superb commentary Sunday, to name just the most prominent recent examples) speaking out against the Mullarkey Majority’s most recent blatantly unconstitutional ruling – and piling-on power grab – in Lobato v. State of Colorado. Ben’s radio piece supplements his first big broadside against the dangerous Lobato ruling and his Taking on the Colorado Supreme Court blog post, following the very-next-day analysis and commentary of the ruling posted right here on Clear The Bench Colorado.
