Voucher Rally: The Wrong Kind of Civics Lesson
Submitted by Frank Murphy, Jan. 27, 2011
Pennsylvania school choice advocates staged a rally this past Tuesday in Harrisburg.  They gathered in order to demonstrate their support for the passage Pennsylvania State Senate Bill 1.  If enacted, this proposed legislation would establish a school voucher program for low-income children in the state of Pennsylvania.
The merits of Senate Bill 1 should be the subject of a civil and thoughtful debate within the legislative chambers of our Government.
