Education Cuts

The Florida Legislature is meeting in Tallahassee this week to cut another $2.5 billion from our state's education budget during the January special session. Right now they are proposing to cut another $500,000,000 from the education budget for THIS YEAR.


As bad as it's been the last two years; it could get much worse if we don't act now!


The legislative leadership needs to hear from you now. Please take just a moment to let the following members know what these cuts mean for your students and how badly further cuts will harm our schools. You can email them by clicking the links below.
