From the article:
In March, Congress voted to eliminate the vouchers after the 2009-2010 school year unless it is re-approved by the D.C. City Council and . . . Congress. The program, which helps send 1,700 kids to school with $7,500 vouchers, was excised even as the stimulus is throwing billions to the nation's school districts.
The NEA's letter was a pre-emptive strike against the possibility that 750,000 students in military families would benefit from vouchers. That idea was raised in a Senate hearing this month, when military families explained that frequent moves and inconsistent schooling was harmful to their children. "The creation of a school voucher program should be considered," Air Force wife Patricia Davis dared to say.

In keeping with his stance on placating the unions, Obama would cut the school voucher program in order to go along with the NEA's concern that if upwards of a million children of military men and women had the option of attending a private school or a public school in a far better school district in order to obtain a top-notch education, that it would negatively affect the public school system, and the ideologies it invokes, controls, and manipulates among its teachers which is passed down to the students.
That's transparancy for yah!!
