Fla. Court Strikes Down School Vouchers (with Excite online poll goodness)

Today's Excite online poll:

Yesterday, the Florida Supreme Court struck down the nations first statewide educational voucher system. The program - which Gov. Jeb Bush considered one of his proudest achievements - allowed children in the state to attend private schools at taxpayer expense. The court ruled that the program undermines public schools and violates the Florida Constitution's requirement of a uniform system of free public education. (AP)

Are you for or against taxpayer-funded vouchers that allow children to attend private schools?

For 36% => 1191 votes

Against 58% => 1924 votes

I'm not sure 4% => 151 votes
Current number of voters: 3266

2. If only he'd devote the same time to making FL's public schools work that
he devoted to this pet project that the people are against. Idiot!
