The Pennsylvanians Opposed to Vouchers paid for this poll. No one should be surprised at that the results. Would anyone believe a poll that showed that indicated that Twinkies are good for you if the poll was paid for by the baking company that produced them?
Terry Madonna Opinion Research, conduct this poll. They are notorious for asking questions slanted towards getting the responses that those who paid for the poll want.
If Modonna asked the polling question "Do you favor all students having an equal opportunity to get a good education", what do you suppose the result would be?

Frankly, I know about 3 people in the world who want their tax dollars to go to Catholic, Bible, and Muslim schools. Trust me, the people who send their kids to the Hill School and Moravian Academy do not want your kids. LOL.

I am in favor of private schools, but pay your own way. That is why they are called private! If you want vouchers, then be sure that you can live with government control of your school as well. You can't have it both ways.
