Boehner, Lieberman Calling for Restart of D.C. School Voucher Program

House Speaker John Boehner, amid frenzied national debates over the economy and federal spending, will detour this week to champion an off-topic issue in his own backyard which could become an early cause of his speakership.

The speaker, along with Sen. Joe Lieberman, I-Conn., on Wednesday plans to introduce legislation to revive a controversial program that provides private-school vouchers for kids of low-income parents in Washington, D.C. Boehner has long been a supporter of that program, which started to wind down in 2009, but is devoting some serious political capital to the cause this week.


We here at TWAU blog have always supported this voucher idea. It will give parents more of a choice in deciding how their children are educated. By way of choosing a Christian private school if they desire.

Liberals will fight this voucher idea tooth and nail, because it tampers with their churches of evolution, (public schools). They won't want an idea that allows for their churches to lose kids.

So We give the school voucher idea two big thumbs up! We also are huge advocates of home-schooling.
