Voucher Valedictorian

Andrew Coulson comments on an NRO article highlighting a DC Opportunity Scholarship recipient who just graduated at the head of her class at Archbishop Carroll High School.

The article notes that the student couldn’t have afforded private school otherwise, and will be the first in her family to attend college.

So why is it that a program that saves students from failing schools, gives them the chance at a college education, improves test scores, and saves taxpayers is being threatened by Congressional Democrats and the teacher’s unions?
