House members talk education spending cuts

According to plan, Florida House PreK-12 Appropriations Subcommittee members Thursday offered their ideas for cutting public education funding if revenue declines as projected. Some targets had broad bipartisan agreement, such as a $14 million incentive fund for school districts that adopt mandatory student uniforms. Other items on the table included district-level administrative funds, money for class size reduction and support for public broadcasting. The state's accountability model even got thrown into the conversation, with Mount Dora Republican Rep. Jennifer Sullivan casually stating, "If we do less testing, our testing budget will be less." When it came to the bottom line, though, the House Republican position on property taxes held firm sway. Democrats on the panel lamented that they did not want to cut any education spending, because money spent in schools helps children who might otherwise land on welfare or in jail. "These kids are trapped," said Rep. Wengay Newton, D-St. Petersburg. "If we don't step up for them, no one will." He and others suggested cutting from other parts of the state budget, if necessary, but to put more money into education -- much like Gov. Rick Scott proposed. "The governor's budget, it looks bright and it has a future," said Rep. Roy Hardemon, D-Miami. But GOP leaders made clear they do not back the governor's plan to leave the tax rate unchanged, because it would generate more tax revenue as property values rise. They pointed to state law that defines a tax increase as any revenue collected beyond the amount brought in the year before. "Why this year is it not an increase if the amount goes up?" said vice chairman Jake Raburn, R-Lithia. At the end of the discussion, chairman Manny Diaz Jr., R-Hialeah, agreed with the members who said the exercise was tough, and that no one wants to slash the budget. At the same time, he said, the committee might have to make a call. "If we are given an allocation and asked to make cuts, we can't just sit here and say we're not going to," Diaz said. He encouraged members to continue studying all line items in the budget. "The vetting project begins with you."

State colleges defend four-year degrees

The Florida College System chancellor on Thursday defended the ability of state colleges to offer four-year degree programs, saying the approval process for new baccalaureate degrees is "rigorous" and that students receiving the degrees remain a small part of overall enrollment. Chancellor Madeline Pumariega told the House Post-Secondary Education Subcommittee that the 28 colleges have had the ability to start baccalaureate programs since 2001, with the first four-year degrees being offered by St. Petersburg College. She said lawmakers approved the expansion of baccalaureate degrees, which traditionally have been awarded by state universities, to keep Florida economically competitive and to provide the flexibility of four-year college "workforce" degrees aimed at filling job-skills gaps in local communities. Currently, 27 of the 28 state colleges offer the degrees in 179 programs. The four-year degrees are the focus of Senate legislation (SB 374) that would overhaul the review and approval process for baccalaureate degrees and impose an enrollment cap on upper-division students at the schools, which in the past were known as community colleges. College advocates have raised objections to the Senate bill saying the new review process could limit the schools' ability to quickly respond to workforce needs, while maintaining baccalaureate degrees play a limited role at their campuses. In the 2014-15 academic year, only 4.5 percent of the more than 800,000 students enrolled in state colleges were in baccalaureate programs, with four-year graduates representing 6 percent of the 111,000 degrees and certificates awarded that year, according to the state Department of Education. Pumariega said the state college system remains focused on two-year associate degrees, which made up 56 percent of the enrollment and 64 percent of the degrees awarded in 2014-15. "You see by enrollment our colleges have stayed true to that (mission)," Pumariega told the House members. Critics of the four-year college degrees point to rapid growth in the system, with Senate analysts noting enrollment in four-year programs more than doubled in the last five years. The growth raises questions of "mission creep" by colleges on the universities' turf and the possibility of costly duplication of programs. http://www.sayfiereview.com/page/State%20colleges%20defend%20fouryear%20degrees
