TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) - The Florida Supreme Court has rejected a teachers union's challenge to a ballot issue that would loosen the state's class size limits.
The unanimous ruling came Thursday, just a day after the justices heard oral argument on Amendment 8.
They ruled its ballot summary accurately describes what the Legislature's proposed state constitutional amendment would do.
The Florida Education Association had argued the summary was misleading because it failed to say the proposal would reduce state spending to ensure that class size requirements are met.
The union wanted the high court to prevent votes from being counted as it would have been too late to take it off the Nov. 2 ballot.
