Democracy Upheld. Court Takeover of Public Schools Fails.

Connecticut’s high court affirmed elected officials’ control over public education policy Wednesday. The 4-3 decision overturns a  2016 Superior Court decision that sought to establish judicial oversight of public education.

Those children are safe from the decision’s chilling animosity.
