DC Opportunity Scholarship Program

House Education and the Workforce Committee Chairman John Kline, House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Darrel Issa, and Subcommittee on Early Childhood, Elementary, and Secondary Education Chairman Todd Rokita sent a letterto Secretary of Education Arne Duncan regarding the D.C. Opportunity Scholarship Program(OSP). The letter criticized the Department’s handling of the program. The letter also requested information regarding how scholarships are awarded and an accounting of OSP funds and funds available to D.C. schools under the SOAR Act. According to its website, the OSP “provides scholarships to low-income families residing in the District of Columbia with expanded education opportunities for their children.” Hopefully the Administration will continue to effectively utilize this program for the sake of the little ones!
