Democrats' deny opportunity to schoolchildren
Posted by Jennifer Marshall
President Obama is a school choice success story, and 38 percent of those in Congress have sent a child to a private school. So why are they denying the same choice to low-income parents in our nation's capital?

The program provides scholarships to 1700 low-income students to attend private schools. Students are making academic gains, and parents are satisfied now that their children finally can attend safe and effective schools.

Ten days ago, Senator Joe Lieberman argued from the Senate floor for the scholarships, which have been nothing short of life-changing for many of these children. That didn't sway enough of his colleagues to save the scholarships. What would losing scholarships mean to the students? Let them tell you: VoicesofSchoolChoice.org.
