School vouchers, do they work?

The DC School Voucher system was quite an experiment. After years of bickering, Congress finally approved them just a few short years ago. And now, thanks to President Obama and the Democratic Congress, they're going bye-bye.

But what do the people that actually experienced these vouchers think?
  • 79% of parents of school age children oppose ending the D.C. Opportunity Scholarship Program.
  • 74% have a favorable view of public charter schools.
  • 74% of Democrats support the voucher program.
Vouchers worked.

It's my hope that communities across the nation will see these numbers and give vouchers the shot that they deserve. Not only is it a winner for the children, but it's clearly a political winner as well, even in one of the highest concentrations of liberalism in the country.

All you need is courage.
