Jeb's claim that student performance not affected by class size refuted by NEA president
In 2002, then-Florida Gov. Jeb Bush was caught admitting he had âdevious plansâ to overturn the class size amendment that voters added to the state constitution that year. In Utah on Tuesday, Bush told officials he didnât know of any research suggesting that lower class sizes impacts student learning. But the president of the National Education Association, Dennis Van Roekel begs to differ.
We spoke with him yesterday when he was in Tampa for a town-hall meeting with teachers. We began the second half of this interview by asking whether thereâs too much testing involved in the Obama administrationâs Race to the Top competitive grants.comments powered by Disqus
