DC Vouchers

Tell Congress: End the DC voucher experiment!

Congress will soon consider funding legislation that could include provisions to extend the problem-ridden DC voucher experiment. This ill-advised program, set to expire this September:
*Has not demonstrated a positive impact on student achievement.

*Diverts $14 million per year from public education and is opposed by three-fourths of DC's own residents.

*Pays tuition for students to go to private schools with unqualified teachers - some do not have even bachelor's degrees.

Urge your elected representatives to put an end to the unproven, poorly managed DC voucher program.

Contact your representatives in Congress TODAY! Tell Congress the DC voucher experiment deserves to die on schedule this September.
