Incoming President of the Florida Senate not a fan of large lecture classes

From the account by the Gainesville Sun of Senator Joe Negron’s visit to the University of Florida yesterday during his “listening tour” of the state’s public universities:

The classes are too large at UF.  There are too many freshmen and sophomores in giant auditoriums with teaching or graduate assistants.

I include the picture below of a studio physics class just to, you know, remind readers of what an economical large enrollment introductory science class can look like.  It doesn’t have to be students warehoused in a 275-seat lecture hall.
