Putting Children Last 

The editors of the Wall Street Journal explain the injustice that Eleanor Holmes Norton is doing in killing D.C.'s voucher program:

The $7,500 voucher is a bargain for taxpayers because it costs the public schools about 50% more, or $13,000 a year, to educate a child in the public schools. And we use the word "educate" advisedly because D.C. schools are among the worst in the nation.

It is so embarrassing and frustrating to have to constantly argue with people that they should support school choice in the nation's capital when the schools are so bad.
