[Scott Keeler | Times]

Gov. Charlie Crist unveiled his proposed education budget today at Bay Vista Fundamental Elementary School in St. Petersburg. He said he wants the Legislature to ask Florida voters to change the class size amendment in the state constitution to make it "more affordable.

Superintendents and others say going to the next phase — caps for every classroom, beginning next school year — would cost too much, create problems with student enrollment and do little to improve student achievement.

Read today's story, then tell us: Would you vote to change the amendment?



Yes, we need do all we can to control costs.
No, we need caps to improve outcomes for every child.
Need more details on what this would mean in the classroom.
