Let's quote Margaret Spellings from her column in today's Washington Post:
Finally, I would ask you to not let Congress take away Opportunity Scholarships for the District of Columbia. They are lifelines for at-risk children, enabling their parents to choose public, private or religious schools that meet their needs. Fortunately, those children have a true champion in Chancellor Michelle Rhee, who is doing a great job turning around D.C. schools.Of course, the President-elect has said he is against them. I wonder if he would say that to the families he might meet over at Sidwell Friends whose kids are there only because of the work of those of us in the school choice movement.
