The Obama administration softened its position on Monday about not expanding the District of Columbia’s private school voucher program, after months of attacks by conservatives of the president’s decision to provide level funding to the program next year. Instead the administration agreed to finance slots for 85 additional students.
U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan released a statement late Monday, citing an agreement that the Obama administration had reached “in partnership with Speaker [John] Boehner,” to increase the D.C. Opportunity Scholarship Program “from the current enrollment of about 1615 to approximately 1700 students.”
