The D.C. Opportunity Scholarship Program at 15: Impacts, Experiences, and the Path Forward

  • 214 Massachusetts Avenue Northeast Washington, DC, 20002 United States (map)

In 2004, the first students began participating in the D.C. Opportunity Scholarship Program – a private school choice program serving low-income families in Washington, D.C. This year marks 15 years of the scholarship program’s operation in the nation’s capital, with more than 1,650 children currently using D.C. OSP scholarships to pay tuition at participating private schools across the city. School choice programs have increased considerably across the country over the past decade, with more and more students having access to options such as vouchers and education savings accounts. What has been the impact of this consequential school choice measure, what does the future hold for the OSP, and what does it mean for families? Join us during National School Choice Week for a conversation with Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos, led by Heritage Foundation president Kay Coles James, followed by a discussion featuring program stakeholders and scholars.
