American Federation of Teachers President Randi Weingarten praised President Barack Obama's decision to stop accepting students into the Washington, D.C., voucher program and to phase out the program. "If there is an insight here about the way Obama makes decisions, it's that he focuses on the right priorities, setting policies in his budget that improve education for the more than 50 million children who attend our public schools," Weingarten wrote in this solicited comment for The Washington Post.
