NEWSFLASH for Charlie Crist: Gubernatorial terms are four years long, not one year. Or, does he have amnesia when it comes to his total education record vs. Governor Scott’s?
EDUCATION FUNDING BY THE NUMBERS
When taking Charlie Crist’s ENTIRE term into account:
- His last and final budget provided K-12 schools $550 per student less in state funds than his first budget.
When taking Rick Scott’s ENTIRE term into account:
- His latest budget provides $370 per student more in state funds than Crist’s last budget.
And today, Governor Scott announced that in the next legislative session he will propose an increase in Florida’s per-pupil spending to be the highest ever in Florida history.
When it comes to education funding, Charlie Crist gets an F: for his record, his fuzzy math and his revisionist history.
