The DC School Voucher system was quite an experiment. After years of bickering, Congress finally approved them just a few short years ago. And now, thanks to President Obama and the Democratic Congress, they’re going bye-bye.
But what do the people that actually experienced these vouchers think?
- 79% of parents of school age children oppose ending the D.C. Opportunity Scholarship Program.
- 74% have a favorable view of public charter schools.
- 74% of Democrats support the voucher program.
It’s my hope that communities across the nation will see these numbers and give vouchers the shot that they deserve. Not only is it a winner for the children, but it’s clearly a political winner as well, even in one of the highest concentrations of liberalism in the country.
All you need is courage.
