George F. Will has an excellent piece on the DC voucher proposal in today’s Washington Post. Legislation to fund the school choice program here in the District narrowly passed the House and is headed to the Senate. Will handily dismisses the criticisms usually applied to voucher programs; this study by Cato’s David Salisbury (whom I’m now interning for) shows that the students fortunate enough to receive them will find affordable private schools to which they can apply them.
