Education news and notes from Tampa Bay and Florida

Charlie Crist bashes Rick Scott on education



Since announcing his bid to retake Florida's governor's mansion, Charlie Crist has spent much time attacking incumbent Rick Scott and his record. Much of the criticism has focused on Scott's education efforts.

Talking on MSNBC, Crist said, "First thing he does when he comes in, Chuck, is cut education by $1.3 billion. That’s an incredible decrease. Then in his second year he decreases funding by $300 million to our state universities."

True? For the most part, yes, Politifact Florida rules after researching the facts. Check out the report here.
