Heritage’s weekly Blogger Briefing heard an emotional plea for the continuation of D.C. school vouchers, a recently scuttled federal program which provided scholarships of up to $7,500 for more than 1,700 low-income children in D.C. to attend a safe and effective private school of their choice.

What: Capitol Rally
When: Wednesday, September 30, 2009
