Gray is right about vouchers
Regarding the Jan. 29 editorial “School vouchers”:
D.C. Mayor Vincent C. Gray (D) was right to oppose vouchers for D.C. students, if for no other reason than to agree with what District residents have expressed in the past. Most of us do not support a voucher program because, in spending extra money on a few students, it makes our school system more inequitable than it already is.
Those precious tax dollars, federal or city, need to be used to improve the entire system. And it is not for members of Congress to impose a voucher program on us any more than they would impose it on any other educational system.
