Court upholds decision to not have class size referendum on November ballot
Bronx voters will not have the chance to vote on class size come November 4. The state's highest court upheld a lower ruling that keeps the class size proposal off the November ballot.
The decision overturned an earlier ruling by the Supreme Court, which paved the way for the proposition to be on the ballot despite the city's effort to keep it off.
Members of the United Federation of Teachers (UFT) had been fighting to get the proposition on class size limits on the November ballot and thought they were victorious. The referendum called for voters to decide whether a commission should be formed to look at limiting class sizes in the Bronx and city.
Now, Mayor Michael Bloomberg's three propositions will be the only ones on the November ballot.
