Huge Legal Ruling Exonerates Florida's School Reforms...

Opponents of school reform got punched in the face today in court, losing a massive, broad ranging suit against the state.  The plaintiff's case:  That virtually every reform enacted in Florida since the late 1990s is unconstitutional.

Today, a judge in Leon County wrote an order that dismissed these claims.  From the Palm Beach Post Blog:

 "Reynolds dismissed the organization’s wide-ranging claim that Florida had failed its duty to provide every student with a high quality and uniform education, as required by the state constitution since a voter-approved 1998 amendment."
