Sunburn for 5.25.16

James Madison Institute’sWilliam Mattox:“The James Madison Institute applauds Judge George Reynolds’ decision today in the “adequacy” lawsuit concerning Florida K-12 education. Over the last quarter-century, student performance in Florida has improved dramatically, thanks to a number of innovative education reforms — including many which required little or no increases in per-pupil spending. This helps to explain why a research team from Harvard and Stanford recently found that Florida delivers greater “bang-for-the-buck” in K-12 education than every other state in the nation. We are pleased to see Judge Reynolds recognize this fact. While we still have work to do to improve education in our state, Floridians have reason to be proud of what has been accomplished.”
