The families I grew to love in my time in Washington have been excited and inspired by the children’s success in their schools. It was incredibly uplifting to entire communities whose children had been previously enrolled in schools that were not serving their needs.
I once again ask President Obama to think about our children. I urge him to put special interests aside and to continue funding the D.C. Opportunity Scholarship Program. Currently participating children must be able to stay in their schools until graduation and additional children must have the chance to attain a great education through this program.
