Arizona Supreme Court Upholds Dismissal of Tuition Challenge

(Phoenix, Ariz. – Aug. 9, 2007) The Arizona Supreme Court today upheld a lower court’s ruling dismissing a challenge to the Arizona Board of Regents’ decision to increase university tuition in 2003.

In Kromko v. Arizona Board of Regents (ABOR), four students sued ABOR for declaratory and injunctive relief, alleging that the tuition charged for the 2003-2004 academic year was excessive and violated the “as nearly free as possible” provision of the Arizona State Constitution.

(Phoenix, Ariz. – Aug. 7, 2007) Maricopa County Superior Court Judge Robert Miles today denied the request for a preliminary injunction that would have prohibited the State of Arizona from requiring Arizona charter schools to incorporate the State’s social studies standards by grade-level into charter schools curriculum.

The issue at question is whether the Arizona State Board of Education has the authority to require curriculum alignment to the State’s academic standards by all schools, including charter schools.
