Rally

 

On September 30, over 3,000 parents, students, teachers and activists rallied at the U.S. Capitol to save the D.C. Opportunity Scholarship Program. 1,715 students are currently in the program and doing well, but Congress is refusing to re-authorize the program that has helped thousands of low-income families choose safe and effective learning environments for their children. This summer, 216 families received letters that their children would not be receiving the scholarships they were promised. The D.C. OSP is overwhelmingly popular in D.C. - as evidenced by the overwhelming turnout at the rally - and is key to ensuring school choice efforts continue to grow and thrive nationwide.
