Senate Republicans Support Educational Opportunities for Low-Income Children

At a press conference in the US Capitol, three Washington, DC, students ask Democrats to continue funding the DC Opportunity Scholarship Program, which gives these students plus 1700 other low-income children a choice of where to attend school. Senators John Ensign, Jim DeMint, Jon Kyl, and Lamar Alexander praised the program for giving low-income children and their parents access to the same kind of educational opportunities enjoyed by members of Congress and their families.
