Education news and notes from Tampa Bay and Florida

The adults just wouldn't understand



The Senate K-12 education committee this week rendered "unfavorable" a plan that would allow school districts with more than 45,000 students to divide into two or more districts. Why? Ask Sen. Larcenia J. Bullard, a Miami Democrat. Bullard argued against the measure, saying that if it were put before voters, they likely would misunderstand its outcome. Rather than reducing class sizes, Bullard said, the measure actually could create a climate where some districts were given advantages over others. Go figure.
