Susan,
    My name is the same in Florida. Its not any better with the education
system here. Jeb Bush has done nothing for our state for education. In fact
monies going to education has been held back so we might loose 11 science
teachers in our county. We appointed science teachers in the elementary
schools so that children could pass the Florida State Science FCAT test next
year. Now Jeb has pulled funds and our county is scambling for funds to pay
for these teachers. It will effect every elementary school child, because
without science enrichment all the other enrichment classes will grow to 32
and over. My projects will greatly reduced and the quality will be lessened
with that many children in our class because I need a volunteer to help them
or they will become frustrated. You know what that's like! Thanks for the
info.
