Democrats continue drive for School Choice

Democrat Road

According to the Alliance for School Choice:

As was the case in 2006 and 2007, Democrats were instrumental in the majority of school choice legislative victories in 2008.

• In Florida, the $30 million expansion of the Corporate Tax Credit Scholarship program was supported by a majority of African-American legislators, all Hispanic legislators, and one-third of the entire Democratic caucus.

• In Louisiana, the New Orleans voucher program passed through the Democratic House and Senate; the bill’s authors in each house were Democrats, and 28 Democratic legislators voted for the bill.

• With the support of Washington, D.C. Mayor Adrian Fenty and other prominent Democrats, continued funding of the D.C. Opportunity Scholarship Program was approved by Congress.
