  • Tucker Carlson on the D.C. Opportunity Scholarship Program and Union Control

    Tucker Carlson takes it to the teachers unions and the administration for phasing-out the highly successful and popular D.C. Opportunity Scholarship Program. “D.C. Public Schools aren’t bad, they’re the worst.” Carlson notes that the D.C. voucher program is “a direct challenge to the teachers’ unions. Here are kids who aren’t going to government schools who are succeeding. And that makes the government-run schools, the union-controlled schools in this city look bad.”

    You can read Heritage’s research documenting the overwhelming success of this free market approach to education here.

    One Response to Tucker Carlson on the D.C. Opportunity Scholarship Program and Union Control

    1. Linda Maddox, Carlsb says:

      I can't believe our President would allow this to happen. The DC kids need to be able to go to good, safe schools.

      This shows Obama really doesn't care about the kids in DC. Shame on him and Michelle.

    Big Government Is NOT the Answer

    Your tax dollars are being spent on programs that we really don't need.
