Focusing on the core functions of education provides an increase to key program areas
K-12 Education is a top priority. This budget provides an additional $1 billion in state funding for K-12 public schools. This will result in $9.5 billion of state funds, the 3rd highest ever, for the school funding formula.
"Success in life is directly tied to education. Effective teachers deserve our respect and thanks."
- Governor Rick Scott
|The budget also largely maintains funding for State Universities, State Colleges and School District Workforce Programs and therefore should minimize any need for tuition increases at public higher education institutions.|
