Regarding Support of “Right Size” Class Size Amendment

February 2, 2010

“To ensure our state has a highly skilled and competitive workforce, Florida’s schools must focus on well-rounded education standards rather than class sizes. Today’s children will be Florida’s future business leaders and attention must be given to a comprehensive curriculum that will produce qualified employees. By promoting flexibility in class size requirements, our children will receive a balanced education that can successfully meet the future needs of Florida’s employers. Associated Industries of Florida (AIF) salutes Sen. Gaetz (R-Niceville) and Rep. Weatherford (R-Wesley Chapel) for their leadership and commitment to safeguarding our children’s education through the “Right Size” Class Size amendment while simultaneously saving tax dollars.”
