How valuable? Well, think Day After Thanksgiving Day sale, but for something much more precious then a new pair of sneakers: quality education for thousands of children.
Federal studies show that the benefits shown by students in the D.C. Scholarship program are accomplished for a fourth of the cost of per-pupil spending in public education. The average tuition at the schools scholarship recipients chose to attend is $6,620. That is ONE QUARTER what the District of Columbia spends per pupil on education: a staggering $26,555.
