Although Ohio Gov. Ted Strickland (D) has said he wants to eliminate the state?s troubled private-school voucher program, the Republican-controlled state House yesterday passed a budget maintaining the program, and the state Senate is apparently poised to do the same. The Columbus Dispatch reports on one parochial school that fails to meet the lowered requirements for private schools to receive state money: Harvest Preparatory Academy, operated by televangelist Rod Parsley?s World Harvest megachurch.
They quote a Dispatch article, which has this gem from a school spokesperson:
“(The school) has the utmost confidence in both the qualifications and the Christian character of its teaching staff,” Corder said. “It would be misleading to suggest that there is a problem to rectify.”
