School Choice Daylin Leach Part 10: DC Vouchers Saved; Progressives Oppose Vouchers for Poorest Kids in Worst Schools- Obama to Leach
Earlier this month, National Review’s Mona Charen called out the President for seeking to defund a program allows participants to enroll in the same excellent school that he had chosen for his own daughters. Two of the program’s participants attended Sidwell Friends, thanks to the vouchers, which is also the President’s daughter Sasha and Malia go to school.
The President is on record opposing the D.C. Opportunity Scholarship program because it doesn’t actually improve student academic outcomes. However according to the data collected by the Black Alliance for Education Options, students who take advantage of the scholarships graduate high school at an astounding 91% rate. This exceeds the graduation rate of those who qualify for the scholarship but don’t take advantage of it by more than 20%.

Education Improvement Tax Credits would allow a Pennsylvania business person to fund a scholarship for a poor kid, currently forced to attend a failing and often violent school, to attend the same school Daylin Leach sends his kids. How could Senator Leach, a father himself oppose this type of opportunity for a child?
