Smaller classes are only a waste for public schools
Gary Chartrand, Jeb Bush and the staff from ReDefined Ed (Jebs blog) often call the class size amendment a waste of money when they aren’t ignoring it when talking about Florida’s education improvement.
They don’t like to mention that Jeb and Gary both sent their children to schools that tout smaller classes. You see for the rich and privileged it is essential but for the great-unwashed masses it’s a waste.
ReDefined Ed recently ran a piece about why parents pick private schools. http://www.redefinedonline.org/2013/11/survey-parents-pick-private-schools-based-learning-environment-test-scores/
Well friends it turns out smaller classes was the third most important reason why parents send their kids to private schools barely behind discipline and environment.
Did the redefined ed bash the private schools for wasting resources? Did they say lets just give the best teachers 7 more students and that will make parents happy? No, not at all.
