Leader Cantor Statement on the SOAR Act

Posted on

Washington, D.C. – House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-VA) today issued the following statement regarding the passage of the Scholarships for Opportunity and Results (SOAR) Act to provide scholarships to low-income students to attend a D.C. school of their parents’ choice:

“Parents, teachers and students agree that school choice is essential to a successful education. Our nation’s students deserve access to the best schools, so they have the opportunity to thrive academically. The SOAR Act restores the overwhelmingly popular D.C. Opportunity Scholarship Program to provide Washington, D.C. students with the opportunity to choose among public, private and charter school options. Providing a good school environment for students means they will have a better chance to succeed and make our country stronger. Through the SOAR Act, District families will once again have access to the best schools for their children. I commend Speaker Boehner for his leadership on reinstating this essential program.”
