per_scottsub_110710_148125c.jpgSB 6 REDUX? Florida teachers worry that a GOP election landslide will bring back the controversial measures with no veto in sight. 

'NOTHING SPECIAL THERE': Pinellas officials seek to add more challenging programs to Countryside High in order to lure more students.

PLAN B: It's time for Florida lawmakers to fix the laws implementing the class size amendment, the Times editorializes. • Sen. Don Gaetz says it will be difficult to come up with something constitutional, the St. Augustine Record reports.

IF THE KIDS DECIDED ... Alex Sink would be governor and Charlie Crist would be senator (for Broward County, at least), the Miami Herald reports.

NEW RESIDENCY RULES: Collier schools aim to stop school zone cheaters, the Naples Daily News reports.

NOW WORK TOGETHER: Martin voters say they'll keep an elected superintendent, leaving the board and superintendent to find some common ground, the Stuart News reports.

A GOOD PRINCIPAL IS HARD TO FIND: Principals with experience are few and far between in South Florida, but that might not be the key to a school's success, the Sun-Sentinel reports (via PB Post).
