How should the Dougco voucher case be decided?

Last week the Colorado Supreme Court heard oral arguments on the Douglas County School District’s voucher program.

From our article:

The oral arguments centered around whether the program violates the state’s school funding and charter school laws, whether the program is designed to benefit the student or religious institutions, and whether the plaintiffs — a group of parents and taxpayers — have legal standing to challenge the program.

That brings us to this week’s question: If you were a supreme court justice, how would you decide the case?
