  • Surviving To Learn Another Day

    Yesterday a House Appropriations subcommittee voted to save 1,900 scholarships for low-income D.C. children from teachers unions intent on killing school choice. The chairman of the subcommittee, Rep. Jose Serrano (D-NY), warned that this was the last year he would allow low income DC students and their families to choose which schools they wanted to go to. Hopefully, given another year, more promising results will come from the program like this week’s Department of Education study showing scholarship students out performed those in public school on reading scores.

    The District’s school children deserve more educational options, not less. To experience the impact better educational choices have on DC families, hear their stories at Voices of School Choice.
