April 19: Crist Did His Job

By Sylvia Gurinsky

Florida Gov. Charlie Crist didn't quite take the entire week alloted to him to announce his decision on Senate Bill 6. He vetoed it last Thursday.

Given all the political noise around him, Crist listened to a majority of Florida residents, who already knew the conclusion he finally came to: This was a bad bill.

Never mind whether this will be good or bad for Crist politically. His decision to veto the bill was a great one for the students and teachers of Florida.

Crist did his job. Next year, the Florida Legislature must do its own job and come up with a common-sense education reform bill.
