The picture accompanying "Florida Senate passes competency-based education bill," (March 10) contains this description: "Windy Hill Middle School is piloting a competency-based education format for the Lake County School District and the State of Florida." 
Shouldn't the Florida Senate wait to see the results of this study before they pass a bill approving competency-based education?
