Congress put school vouchers to the test in 2004 when it authorized the D.C. Opportunity Scholarship Program (DCOSP), a federally funded voucher program serving low-income students in the nation’s capital. Congress mandated a formal evaluation of the program, and researchers hired by the Department of Education have now released their latest report. The facts demonstrate higher levels of parental satisfaction, school safety, graduation rates, and test scores.
