Yeah, I wondered about that.
Thanks. Not sure where the rage is coming from, but hey, I appreciate the comment.
The Storify of the meeting last night (with contributions from myself, Joey Garrison, Blake Farmer, Cara Kumari, and others) is pretty interesting reading. I collected it here (left out some redundant tweets and retweets, it should be noted):
The interjecting voice telling Dr. Register not to say the entitlement thing on air is June Keel, Asst. Superintendent for Human Resources.
"Total" refers to each individual class and is higher than the school-wide "average" allowed. Current law is designed so that there is an absolute ceiling on the number of students in any given class, but lower required "average" sizes means that every class in the school can't be maxed out, otherwise you'd never hit the lower average. It's a compromise so that a few classes can be large (and hit the max), but that most classes will have to come in well under the max so that the school-wide average can be met.
Currently (T.C.A. 49-1-104), the maximum individual class sizes are:
K-3: 25; 4-6: 30; 7-12: 35
School-wide class size averages under current law are set at 5 below the maximum.
I'm a Tennessean subscriber, Can't Think, and I can tell you: Your education coverage is not good. "Our education coverage will give you a Ph.D. by proxy" -- seriously -- I hope that was a joke.
There's also a pair of excellent Slate articles that go into the standing issue (http://www.slate.com/id/2263943/) and the possibilities for Kennedy's eventual vote, if it gets that far (http://www.slate.com/id/2263792/).
