A step forward in Education policy

The dedicated work of the Heritage experts in the Center for Education Policy is paying off.

Last Wednesday Heritage education expert Lindsey Burke was invited to the White House to celebrate with D.C. students receiving scholarships through the D.C. Opportunity Scholarship Program (D.C. OSP).

D.C. OSP has finally been reauthorized through the budget, after barely surviving the last administration. President Obama had repeatedly tried to eliminate the program, which allows low-income students to attend safe and effective schools of their choice, through the budget process.

Over the years Heritage experts have published numerous reports, held countless meetings with Hill offices, produced videos, and worked with supporters to push for better education policy.

After years of drawing attention to this neglected scholarship lifeline for needy students, it’s a great victory to see it get such support from this administration and Congress.

Watch the Daily Signal’s video below to find out more about this scholarship program.
