    The Washington Post has a pretty good piece on the D.C. vouchers. Some private schools won’t participate because of the strings.

    Georgetown Day School head Peter Branch and Sidwell Friends School head Bruce Stewart, among others, said it is vital for them to do some screening of applicants to ensure that a child can be successful at their schools.

    …Maret School head Marjo Talbott said that federal money always comes with regulations that would compromise a private school’s ability to make its own decisions about curriculum, hiring and admissions.

    That’s why vouchers are at best a half-measure to true education reform.
