Mary Richards, KSL Newsradio Many schools are getting letters from a pro-voucher group threatening legal action if teachers talk about the issue at school.

The letter from Parents for Choice in Education came as a surprise to Morgan Elementary School Principal Ralph Pomeroy. He says his teachers don't discuss vouchers at all in school. "It's a divisive thing, and if we keep it out of the school we can work better together as a faculty and staff for the benefit of the kids, and that's why we're here," he said.

The letter claims a school in the state distributed anti-voucher materials at a back-to-school night. The group threatens legal action if this continues.

Principals in other districts also report receiving the letter but say they don't discuss political issues at school.
