Tell Congress: End the DC voucher experiment!

President Bush is asking Congress to extend the problem-ridden DC voucher experiment, set to expire this September, even though it:

· Has not demonstrated a positive impact on student achievement.

· Diverts $14 million per year from public education and is opposed by three-fourths of DC’s own residents.

· Pays tuition for students to go to private schools with unqualified teachers – some do not have even bachelor’s degrees.

Urge your elected representatives to say “no” to President Bush and put an end to the unproven, poorly managed DC voucher program.

Contact your representatives in Congress TODAY!

Tell Congress the DC voucher experiment deserves to die on schedule this September.
