Kendrick Meek bashes class size vote

Democratic U.S. Senate candidate Kendrick Meek released a statement bashing the Florida House for its 77-41 vote Thursday to put class size limits back before voters.

Meek lead the constitutional effort to reduce class size in 2002. 

From the press release: "Politics trumped sound public policy today. The assault continues on Florida’s hard-fought limits on class sizes and our opponents – special interests and Tallahassee bureaucrats – will stop at nothing to put their own self-interests ahead of the needs of our children. In November, parents and teachers alike will make their voices heard to ensure that our children receive the best education possible. Smaller class sizes are one way to uphold that promise, and I will continue fighting for this right.”
