Abstract:

According to a 2007 survey conducted by The Heritage Foundation, 37 percent of U.S. Representatives and 45 percent of U.S. Senators sent their children to private schools: roughly four times the rate of the rest of the population. Members of Congress should support policies that give all families the opportunity to choose the best school options for their children.
