He didn’t say I was wrong, in fact he said both played a role in increasing test scores.
Usually these guys are on message but Chartrand can’t pass up a chance to show us how ignorant he is.
Today in the Palm Beach Post he said: Florida Board of Education Chair Gary Chartrand, an appointee of Gov. Rick Scott, used a K-12 education discussion to tee-off on the state’s class-size amendment, approved by voters over opposition from Bush in 2002.
“In my opinion we are wasting money to the tune of half-a-billion dollars a year,” Chartrand said Friday.
The amendment, which imposes limits on the number of students in classrooms, withstood a ballot effort in 2010 to revamp it to apply only to a school average. Chartrand said that’s the standard he’d like to see applied, allowing money to be redirected to improve teacher performance.
Limiting the number of students in a class doesn’t help kids achieve but rather is just “wasteful spending,” he said.
What’s wasteful is the state of Florida paying him a salary.
