Feinstein Endorses Vouchers in D.C.
Everyone eventually has to face facts. D.C. has been run by Congress for years, and it is where Congress tests its ideas about education. The spending is extremely high ($10,700 per student) and the outcomes are pitiful. Washington has some of the worst schools in the nation. Not a single member of Congress would send his or her kids there.
These clear facts have many liberals abandoning the education lobby, and supporting a way for gifted, poor students to escape the trap of D.C. public schools.
Let's hope more people follow Dianne Feinstein in recognizing what has become a clear fact: More money does not improve schools in neighborhoods where teenage pregnancy is the norm.
