Rick Scott Wants Another Boost In Money For Schools
Scott will outline his education budget recommendations on Monday during a stop in Delray Beach.
The Republican governor wants state legislators to boost spending on public schools by $542 million.
The Scott administration says that the budget request would result in a record level of nearly $19 billion for schools.
Scott says the budget would provide the “tools, training and funding to give our students the best chance for success.”
Last year Scott asked for a $1.2 billion increase.
Scott’s budget request for education will also include $2 billion for state colleges and $3.59 billion for the state university system.
