OK Court Shields Parents Who Use State Funds for Special-Needs Private Schools

OKLAHOMA CITY — Oklahoma school districts cannot sue parents who use state funds to send their special-needs children to private schools, the Oklahoma State Supreme Court ruled Tuesday.

On a 7-2 vote, justices said the Jenks and Union public school districts  in northeast Oklahoma did not have legal standing to sue the parents who receive state aid through the Lindsey Nicole Henry Scholarship for Students with Disabilities Program.

The decision was seen as a win for school-choice advocates.
