Logan City School District v. Kowallis
In Logan City School District v. Kowallis, 94 Utah 342, 347-48, 77 P.2d 348, 350-51 (1938) the Court stated that the requirement that the schools must be open to all children of the state is a prohibition against any law or rule which would separate or divide the children of the state into classes or groups, and grant, allow, or provide one group or class educational privileges or advantages denied another.
No child of school age, resident within the state, can be lawfully denied admission to the schools of the state because of race, color, location, religion, politics, or any other bar or barrier which may be set up which would deny to such child equality of educational opportunities or facilities with all other children of the state.
This is a direction to the Legislature to provide a system of public schools to which all children of the state may be admitted.
It is also a prohibition against the Legislature, or any other body, making any law or rule which would deny admission to, or exclude from, the public schools any child resident of the state, for any cause except the child's own conduct, behavior, or health.
The schools are open to all children of the state when there are no restrictions on any child, children, or group of children which do not apply to all children in the state alike.
