Let Opportunity Scholars SOAR

Posted: March 9, 2011 in john boehner

Since 2004, the D.C. Opportunity Scholarship gave more than 3,300 of Washington, D.C.’s neediest students and parents an educational lifeline to escape failing, dangerous schools. But under pressure from their powerful union allies, President Obama and Congressional Democrats abandoned the program…and even TOOK BACK 216 scholarships students had won. Our children deserve better: that’s why House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) introduced H.R. 471: the SOAR Act. The SOAR Act restores hope and the Opportunity Scholarship Program, while strengthening Washington’s public and charter schools. American children, no matter what their background, deserve the chance to win the future. Let Opportunity Scholars SOAR.
