The future of the D.C. Opportunity Scholarship Program (D.C. OSP) is hanging in the balance. Poison pill language hidden in the 2009 government spending bill began phasing out the program. The Obama administration, beholden to special interest education unions, stood by as the last Congress worked to phase-out the highly successful scholarship program. However, with a new congress, there is new hope for school choice. Heritage has been on the forefront of the school choice movement and has written extensively about it. Join us right now for our “Lunch with Heritage” chat. We will be joined by Education policy expert Lindsey Burke. She is taking your questions about the future of School Choice and why the D.C. Opportunity Scholarship Program is so important to the future of education reform.
