THE FLORIDA LEGISLATURE IS DAYS AWAY FROM A VOTE ON CLASS SIZE -- THIS IS JEB BUSH'S TOP PRIORITY
Millions of Floridians went to the polls four years ago and demanded that their state government fix the problem of overcrowded classrooms. Volumes of research demonstrate children in small classes learn better. They are less likely to drop out, are better behaved and have higher grade-point averages.
Smaller classes make sense.
Unfortunately, because of Jeb Bush and Republicans in the legislature, Florida's classrooms today remain among the most crowded in the nation, despite the fact that an overwhelming 70% of Floridians want the 2002 smaller class size law to become reality.

Every year since Florida voted for smaller classes, Republicans have attempted to repeal the law -- when they should have been implementing it to improve Florida's neighborhood schools.
Fortunately, we've beat them every time because Floridians know that smaller classes mean better neighborhood schools. But now the Republicans are pushing their most devious repeal plan to date - audaciously and misleadingly claiming that it will improve schools.
We have to get the word out and STOP them!
Republicans in the legislature continue to ignore the will of voters who want to invest in public schools and ease overcrowding in our classrooms.
The latest attempt to repeal the class size amendment won't make our schools better. In fact, it could mean as much as a $14 billion cut to education over the next six years. We have to stop this repeal now!
Sign the PETITON NOW to STOP the REPUBLICAN REPEAL and TELL YOUR FRIENDS: http://www.floridawantssmallerclasses.org/...
Our Democratic leaders can't do it alone. They need your support to beat the Republican machine.
Thank you for fighting for a better Florida,
Chair, Florida Democratic Party
