WMNF Drive-Time News Friday | Listen to this entire show:
In 2002, then-Florida Gov. Jeb Bush was caught admitting he had â€œdevious plansâ€ to overturn the class size amendment that voters added to the state constitution that year. In Utah on Tuesday, Bush told officials he didnâ€™t 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 thereâ€™s too much testing involved in the Obama administrationâ€™s Race to the Top competitive grants.
