Evaluation of the DC Opportunity Scholarship Program: First Year Report on Participation
The District of Columbia School Choice Incentive Act of 2003 was passed by Congress in January 2004. The Act provided funds for District of Columbia Public Schools (DCPS) improvement activities and charter school facility acquisitions. Most notably, the statute established what is now called the DC Opportunity Scholarship Program―the first federal government initiative to provide K-12 education scholarships, or vouchers, to families to send their children to private schools of choice.
