Senators Joe Lieberman (ID-CT) and Susan Collins (R-ME) have given low-income families a sign of hope and courage this week by requesting that Secretary of Education Arne Duncan rethink his decision to refuse new applicants to the DC Opportunity Scholarship Program. In a letter dated April 21, Lieberman and Collins ask that the program be given a fair hearing before any decisions are made about its future:
We respectfully request that you refrain from implementing significant changes to the program until we have an opportunity to review the program’s results, hold public hearings, and have a thoughtful debate about the future of the program.”
The full text of the letter can be found on Senator Lieberman’s website here.
