Class size: House panel proposes “flexibility” in law

Florida’s class law — controversial and altered several times — should get another change this year, one that would allow schools to put more students in some classes without fear of penalties, a House education panel said Tuesday. Under the state’s 2002 rule, schools must limit the number of children in “core courses” to 18, 22 or 25, depending on grade level. But there’s a big exception made possible by a rule lawmakers approved several years ago: Schools declared “schools of choice” and charter schools (public schools run by private groups) can skirt those tough rules and calculate class size by using an easier-to-meet, school-wide average. More and more schools now use that choice provision to escape the class-size law’s strictest mandates. There have been complaints — in part because that provision means many students are in bigger classes — but lawmakers so far have not changed those rules. Rep. Ralph Massullo, R-Lecanto, said the state should “level the playing field” by getting rid of the exception for so-called choice schools but then allowing all schools to use a school-average calculation before they faced penalties. His bill (HB 591) would mean schools would not lose money, as long as their average class sizes were in compliance. Under the measure, schools would try to get math, reading, science and social studies class sizes to the caps voters demanded in the 2002 election. But they would not face penalties, if their school averages were in compliance, even if some classrooms were not. “This is allowing flexibility within the system,” Massullo. “It’s an easier lift.” The measure won approval by a 13 to 2 Tuesday from the House’s pre-k-12 innovation subcommittee. It will likely have broad support from school administrators. They have long complained that the hard class-size caps create problems as they try to balance class-sizes but also put students in the courses they want and need. The Senate’s version (SB 808) has not been heard in committee yet. Rep. Joseph Abruzzo, D-Boynton Beach, voted against the measure, saying he wanted to hear from the teachers union — a major supporter of the 2002 constitutional amendment that made class-size caps a law. He also said a lack of movement on the Senate side suggested the bill might not have much support in that chamber.

Education bills advance in House; differences with Senate

Two bills on high-profile education issues that could set up conflicts with the Senate unanimously passed a House panel Tuesday. The House PreK-12 Quality Subcommittee approved legislation aimed at limiting the time spent on testing (HB 773) and safeguarding students' and teachers' religious liberties at public schools (HB 303). But the testing proposal, in particular, could run into resistance among senators who want to go further in curtailing standardized exams that have sparked backlash and protests among parents. The House version of the assessments bill has run into criticism because, even though it is called the “Fewer, Better Tests” legislation, it does not explicitly eliminate any tests. The measure would require the state's language arts and math tests to be administered in the last three weeks of a school year, with the exception of the 3rd-grade reading exam. It also requires that scores for any tests used by local school districts be provided to teachers within a week, instead of the month currently allowed by law. And it calls for the state to conduct a study of whether college-entrance exams are closely aligned with Florida's high school standards, with an eye on potentially using them as at least a partial replacement for the state's graduation tests. “This bill pursues a worthwhile goal, attempting to decrease testing in Florida,” said Beth Overholt, an education activist. “(But) while it does reduce the testing window, it does not in fact decrease the number of tests or the high stakes attached to the tests.” There is a Senate counterpart to Diaz's bill (SB 926), but a bipartisan group has rallied around a more far-reaching measure (SB 964) that would, among other things, get rid of the requirement for end-of-course tests in geometry, Algebra II, U.S. history and civics. In contrast, the version of the religious liberties bill approved by the House subcommittee preserves many of the same protections as the Senate legislation (SB 436), which narrowly passed the Senate Judiciary Committee on Tuesday. A revamped House version of the bill, however, does not include a requirement for school districts to approve a “limited public forum” policy for student speakers.
