SOTU FACT: Saving Successful D.C. School Choice Initiative Would Be Real Bipartisan Education ReformPosted by Press Office on January 25, 2011
CLAIM: The Obama Administration is committed to bipartisan education reform.
FACT: If President Obama is serious about bipartisan education reform, he should work with both parties to save the successful, bipartisan D.C. school choice initiative that his administration has declined to renew. The D.C. Opportunity Scholarship Program (DC OSP) provides low-income students an opportunity to receive a scholarship to attend a DC private school of their parent’s choice.
Tomorrow, House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) and Sen. Joe Lieberman (I-CT) will hold a press conference to announce they have introduced legislation to reauthorize the DC OSP. Tonight, Speaker Boehner is hosting parents, students, and teachers who have benefited from the OSP as his guests for the State of the Union.
