Tom Callan, KSL News Radio Under attack from pro-voucher groups, the Utah PTA says it has every right to flood the schools with anti-voucher literature.

The PTA says it doesn't have to file any paperwork with the Lieutenant Governor's Office since it has spent less than $750 on its anti-voucher push. "We haven't done any internal polling at all. Our whole purpose is to educate so that people can vote intelligently," explained PTA President Marilyn Simister.

And what does Simister think of those Oreo cookie ads claiming a pro-voucher vote means more money for the public schools? "I think they're very deceiving. I think that it is just plain not that easy and doesn't explain how schools are funded on a public level," she said.

Pro-voucher groups disagree, claiming fewer students in the schools means more money.
