Another Vote For Amendment 8

Another vote for amendment 8.  It seems reasonable not to run a school system based on very rigid formulas.

The 2002 class-size amendment basically mandated that elementary schools have a cap of 18 students per class, middle school 22, and high school 25. Amendment 8 would keep those caps as averages, giving districts leeway. And there would still be caps of 21, 27, and 30 respectively.

And it will save taxpayers hundreds of millions of dollars. The group Florida TaxWatch estimates it will save at least $350 million a year. Newspaper reports have put the savings at $7 billion over the next ten years.

This is a no-brainer. Vote for Amendment 8.
