Earlier today, I attended a rally of more than 1,000 students, parents, and activists protesting the decision by the Obama administration and Democratic Congress to defund the tremendously successful D.C. Opportunity Scholarship program, which provides parents with the choice to send their children to private schools rather than failing public schools, just like the choice that President Obama made for his daughters. Joe Lawler plans a more thorough report later, but I just thought I’d post this video in which Carlos Battle, a student at Georgetown Day School, talks about how he doesn’t fit the stereotype of a black teenager, and sending him back to a public school would be like kicking the ladder out from under him. Mary Katharine Ham has more photos from the event.
