Douglas County is trying something no one’s tried before in order to give public money to support students in private schools. The idea is to create a charter school - unlike any other charter school in Colorado. It's only goal? To run a voucher program for students to attend private schools. The school board votes on it tonight. Colorado Public Radio's Education Reporter Jenny Brundin has the story.
