(Guest Post by Matthew Ladner)

Former mayor and current D.C. Councilman Marion Barry endorsed the school voucher program today in the Washington Post:

I was fortunate that I could afford the right school for my son. As I have been in years past, I am focused today on those who most need help. We need to give the same opportunity to the District’s low-income parents, and this package would help ensure that all parents in our city have choices about where their children attend school.
