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

Posted By Lindsey Burke On July 15, 2010 @ 3:00 pm In Education | Comments Disabled

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 [1].
