The Quality Of Education In Florida Is Better Than You Think

 In Fishkind Commentaries

On Monday, Governor Rick Scott announced his proposal to boost Florida’s education funding. He wants to increase spending to $7,176 per student, about $261 higher than this school year. If legislators approve, overall public school spending would jump to nearly $20 million.

This week, economic analyst Hank Fishkind looks at the spending proposal in light of the recent “Quality Counts” nationwide education report. It gave Florida a score of C+, lower than last year’s B- but topping this year’s national grade of C-.

Fishkind tells 90.7’s Nicole Creston that when it comes to education spending, Florida knows how to get a lot of bang for its buck.
