Senator: National Education Association (NEA) spreading misinformation… and it needs to be corrected. Independent Democrat Senator Joe Lieberman of Connecticut came to the defense of the District of Columbia Opportunity Scholarship Program.
The Senator said a letter sent by the National Education Association to U.S. Senators on the Armed Services Committee had misinformation in it.
In a letter sent to Senators, Senator Leiberman said "My purpose in sending (the) letter was to correct misinformation on the effectiveness of the D.C. Opportunity Scholarship Program."
The letter from the NEA was in an attempt to stop the renewal of scholarship programs for District of Columbia students and proposed scholarship programs for military families to attend private schools.
