Photos From D.C. Opportunity Scholarship Rally

On Wednesday, more than 1,000 parents and students gathered in Freedom Plaza in Washington, D.C. to voice their opposition to President Obama's decision to end the D.C. Opportunity scholarship, which gives poor children the chance to attend private schools in the area. Watch the parents in the video below and browse the pictures — these are the people that congressional Democrats and President Obama think are worth less than the financial and political support of teacher union leaders.
