PulsePoll results: "cyber schools"

Last week's PulsePoll question was about so-called “virtual schools” or “cyber schools” operated by for-profit corporations. Supporters want these virtual/cyber schools to receive MFP funding just as if they were regular public schools.

We asked: Do you believe that funding of these virtual/cyber schools is an appropriate use for state education dollars?

There were 238 responses to the question. Two hundred eight, or 87%, said "no," while 30, or 13%, said "yes."

This week's question:

Do you believe that it is more important to oppose all taxes than it is to fund education, specifically our public colleges and universities?
