TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) - A circuit court judge ruled Friday that voters have the right to determine class sizes in Florida.
Judge Charles Francis agreed Friday with the state's argument that the summary and title on Amendment 8 accurately describes the proposal's intent to make class size requirements flexible.
Florida Education Association attorney Ron Meyer says he will appeal the judge's decision. He contends the amendment's wording is misleading because it doesn't address school funding. The amendment is one of several voters will see in November.
Meyer also says the FEA would work to inform voters that passing Amendment 8 would diminish the amount of money provided by the state besides increasing class sizes.
