Survey: In Pennsylvania, 65% against school vouchers
Conducted by Terry Madonna Opinion Research in September, the phone survey of 801 Pennsylvanians across the state showed 65 percent of those polled oppose giving tax payer dollars to parents so they could send their children to a private school. The survey was conducted through random-digit dialing. It had a margin of error of plus or minus 3.5 percent.
The research also showed two-thirds of those polled said they were satisfied with the quality of their community schools. Only 9 percent said they were very dissatisfied.
Gov. Tom Corbett says his long-awaited school reform package, which includes vouchers, charter school improvements and economic furloughs for teachers will be released soon.
