Florida Class Sizes

In Florida, we will soon be voting on a constitutional amendment that will limit K-12 class sizes . As you can see from last night’s debate , it will take anywhere from $8 to 27 Billion to fund it (depending on which estimate you use) and less than $1 Billion in funding has been proposed . Where will the additional funds come from: anywhere they can get them. First, school budget are going to be stripped to the bone (sort of like the two examples I cited earlier) and then all sorts of other state funding is going to be hit (like funds that go to Higher Education and Public Libraries ). Not a pretty picture if it passes.
