Excerpts:


Without a voucher, Pittman would not be able to send Elias to the private Catholic school.

‘I love the school,’ she said. ‘I wouldn’t switch him for anything.’
 
“I don’t want to imagine what would happen if the program ended,’ his mother says. ‘It gives my son choices and it gives me hope.’
                                                       
 

‘It’s political. It’s unfortunate. It’s wrong,’ said Ann Duplessis, the president of the Louisiana Federation for Children (LFC).
 
 
‘Every year there’s another threat to the program, and we’re still here, year after year,’said Republican Gov. Bobby Jindal in an interview with the Washington Free Beacon. ‘We survived everything else, just when the program was growing and everything was moving forward all of a sudden here comes the federal government.
 
 
‘As soon as I got to this school they have teaching me so well that every report card I’ve had A’s or B’s, I never failed a grade,’ said Brian Ridgley, 11, a junior at Good Shepherd.
 

‘If the president doesn’t have time to visit schools, at least send the attorney general before you file a lawsuit,’ Jindal said. ‘Come see for yourself the lives you’re disrupting, the people you’re harming.’

There is no doubt the children would be happy to see him. Walking into a first grade class, the teacher asks them to say hello to their guest.

‘Welcome to New Orleans!’ they yell. ‘Welcome to Good Shepherd!’

‘Ms. Harrington is from Washington, D.C.’ Roy says.

‘Oh! Say hi to Obama!’”
