Vote YES on the D.C. Promise!

This petition had 309 supporters

As students, parents, educators, and residents burdened by skyrocketing college tuition costs, please vote YES on the D.C. Promise Establishment Act on Tuesday, February 4th.

College is expensive. And it is growing more expensive with each passing year. In fact, the cost of higher education is growing faster than family incomes.  As a result, many students, especially those from low-income families, are unable to continue their education after high school for financial reasons.

The D.C. Promise Establishment Act seeks to guarantee that every District student can pursue a college or technical education after high school.  The D.C. Promise program will encourage District students to pursue their educational goals by providing additional assistance for tuition and fees after other sources of financial aid have been exhausted.

Thank you for considering our view on this legislation.
