Meek stands up for public education

As Naked Politics Reports, he's written to Democratic and Republican leaders alike that

"Turning back on the class size amendment now is a slippery slope. Already, county administrators have said that they would use the modified amendment as an allowance to raise class sizes in order to 'save' money. But, we cannot go backwards. There is no doubt that Florida faces a heavy lift economically. But years from now we will all be known by today's investments in and commitment to our youngest citizens."
However, isn't it easier for someone who's in another office to say this? Still, it's good position taking and a good statement that's pretty straight forward.
