Why are D.C. vouchers
While D.C. Mayor Williams and School Board
President Cafritz have changed their personal views on
vouchers, the D.C. community has not. Vouchers were rejected in a
referendum in 1982 and in a survey in November 2002. The
School Board issued a resolution against vouchers in July
2002. See D.C. Voucher News
for more information
Instituting this voucher plan
that originated in Congress and not in the City Council
undermines home rule.
Voucher experiments have
already been tried and failed in Milwaukee, Dayton, Cleveland,
New York and D.C .
Private schools in Washington D.C. and its
suburbs have limited capacity to receive even a small number
of voucher recipients and that is assuming the private schools
would take them. Unlike public schools, private schools would
not be bound by accountability for test scores, discrimination
on disability or religious grounds or teacher qualifications.
We know vouchers do not work
and D.C. does not want them! Read more
on why vouchers are bad policy. Read
