High court's decision in 8-year-old case reverses a lower court ruling

The Colorado Supreme Court, overturning a lower court’s decision, has ruled that the state's school finance system is constitutional. The Denver Post says that the reversal is a defeat for education advocates who for eight years have sought greater and more equitable funding for public schools. Plaintiffs had argued that Colorado doesn't provide a constitutionally mandated "thorough and uniform" system of public education.
