Education news and notes from Tampa Bay and Florida

Give the gift of a college education



Holiday-gift-blue Still last-minute holiday shopping? The folks at Florida Prepaid College Plans want to remind you that there's still time to invest in a child's higher education in this round of plan enrollment.

"Buying toys, video games and sports equipment is fun, but it's smart to redirect some of those dollars to what children will need for their future, a college education," Florida Prepaid executive director Tom Wallace says in a news release. "Starting to save for college or enhancing existing college savings for your children and grandchildren may be the most meaningful gift you give this holiday season."

If you think getting more kids into college is worth it, that is.
