From the Orlando Sentinel:
Florida’s private high schools will no longer have to pay for their students to take dual enrollment courses, thanks to a new state law, but the change could deliver a financial hit to the state colleges that offer teenagers those classes…
Public schools, which already pay for their students’ dual enrollment classes, will continue to do so. The Orange County school district, for example, paid Valencia College $1.3 million for 3,518 students to take college classes for the 2017 fall semester, district officials said…
You know who also has a hard time paying for things? Every freaking school district in Florida as the legislature continues to squeeze them.
It’s terrible for our colleges too as they will have to make up the money for the classes out of their budgets. The education hating legislature got a twofer, they were able to screw public schools and higher education at the same time.
How is this even remotely fair? Well the answer is it is not and it is just more proof that the republican in the Florida legislature are doing all they can to harm public schools. Is this what my republican friends voted for.
Well friends, when will enough be enough?
