It is popular with the parents, it works, it's cheaper, it is better for the kids.....and obama and the democrats oppose it. http://townhall.com/tipsheet/guybenson/2011/03/30/house_to_vote_on_dc_school_vouchers_program_today_-_update_bill_passes And since most of the kids who go to the city schools in D.C. are black, one must therefore conclude that obama and the democrats are racist. Here is highlight of the article: Before it was unceremoniously kneecapped by the White House and Congressional Democrats in 2009, the program had established a track record of improving reading scores, dramatically lifting graduation rates, and winning strong parental satisfaction. Oh, and it achieved all of this success at roughly one-fourth the cost of per-pupil public school spending. Let me repeat that: The DCOSP nearly doubled the high school graduation rate of its students (compared to their public school peers -- 91 percent vs. 55 percent) at a fraction of the cost So much for the assetion that is the democrats who really look out for blacks and it is the R's who are racist.
