Utah Fits All Scholarship Lawsuit

Updates & Motion to Intervene

If you haven’t heard, the Utah Education Association (UEA) filed a lawsuit against the Utah Fits All Scholarship Program. This is a tactic taken by teacher unions in every state that passes significant school choice legislation.

Read our statement HERE

Motion to Intervene 
A motion has been filed to defend against the lawsuit attacking the Program. We’ve been communicating with the fine people filing this motion for over a year now regarding their preparation for the possibility of just such an action being taken against our school choice law. The Partnership—a joint project of the Institute for Justice (IJ) and EdChoice intends to represent families participating in the program against the legal challenge.
