Boost or cut ed spending? Depends on who you ask

State lawmakers seem of two minds on education funding this year, with those in the Florida Senate offering up ideas to boost spending for financial aid and teacher pay and their counterparts in the House already looking at what can be cut from school and college budgets. The differing views on education fit with the differing views that have  emerged on how to build a state budget, most notably on how or if to cut state taxes. Gov. Ricks Scott, who has already proposed $618 million in tax cuts, today will announce his budget proposal for the 2017-18 fiscal year. The Florida Legislature, which crafts and votes on the state budget, will consider Scott’s suggestions, information from state agencies and state economists and its own priorities to devise a final spending plan this spring. So far, the Senate’s education budget panel has discussed increasing funding for the Bright Futures Scholarship Program as part of an initiative to improve higher education in Florida and boosting money spent on a state teacher bonus program. The Florida House, to date, has discussed cutting both K-12 and higher education budgets. House leaders asked educators at all levels to figure out what a 10 percent cut would do to their spending plans. Education Commissioner Pam Stewart said Florida’s school districts would face what they did in 2008 and 2009, when the Great Recession prompted them to eliminate programs, delay maintenance work and impose freezes on pay raises. “They would find themselves in that same situation should they have to make those kinds of cuts,” she told a House budget panel. Her department proposed that rather than a 10 percent cut across the board, some programs — those that served limited numbers of students — be eliminated completely so others could be reduced by a smaller amount. The University of Central Florida warned another House panel that cutting 10 percent, or $26 million, from its budget would not be an easy swallow. The UCF provost said such a cut would mean delaying lab renovations, reducing the university's regional campuses and freezing new faculty hires.

Montford’s bill offers alternative pathways to diploma

Florida Sen. Bill Montford, a Tallahassee Democrat who heads the state superintendents association, submitted legislation Monday to give high school students more chances to earn a standard diploma if they don't pass state-mandated algebra and language arts tests. Unlike a similar measure in the House, Montford's bill [SB 584] would not allow students to skip the state exams and substitute them with a portfolio, industrial certification or alternate test. Rather, the students would have to fail the 10th-grade language arts Florida Standards Assessment or the Algebra I end-of-course exam before becoming eligible for the other options. Montford said he considered going the other way. But he had doubts about getting the idea of eliminating the tests through the Legislature. And he said the need to give teens a path to a diploma rather than a certificate of completion is too great to saddle the concept with a battle over opting out. As written, he said, "I think this bill has an excellent chance of passing. It's the right thing for these students who do all the work and are very successful," yet just cannot pass the tests. Montford still plans to submit a more sweeping bill to overhaul Florida's entire testing system. He filed SB 584 separately, he said, in case the broader attempt is not successful.

Democrats: DeVos didn’t provide satisfactory answers

Betsy DeVos, the Michigan billionaire President Trump tapped as his education secretary, delivered answers Monday to the more than 1,000 questions put to her by Democrats on the Senate Education Committee, just one day before the panel is set to vote on her confirmation. The Democrats said they were not satisfied with her responses on critical questions. The Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor and Pensions is set to vote on her confirmation at 10 a.m. today, a week later than it was originally scheduled. On Monday, Sen. Patty Murray (D-Wash.), the ranking member of the committee, urged the chairman, Republican Sen. Lamar Alexander of Tennessee, to delay the vote again, but Alexander declined. The DeVos nomination has become as controversial as any of Trump’s Cabinet picks. Her supporters see her as a champion of school choice. Critics say her advocacy in education proves she wants to privatize public education. The pitched battle over her nomination intensified over the weekend and Monday. Supporters began running paid advertisements on the Internet urging the Senate to confirm her, while critics rallied on Capitol Hill to oppose her and more calls against her surfaced. More than 1,400 members of the community at the elite Williams College released a letter objecting to her confirmation, saying that her refusal to “support federal policies regarding educational systems that receive public funding” was disqualifying. During her Jan. 17 confirmation hearing before Alexander’s committee, she failed to show an understanding of some key education issues, and Democrats later submitted questions to her to answer before the vote. Alexander moved the committee vote from January 24 to January 31 to give her time to answer the questions. Democrats asked her, according to Alexander, 837 follow-up questions, some of them with several parts, amounting to a total of 1,397 questions. DeVos delivered the answers at about 10:30 a.m. Monday, about 24 hours before the vote. Democrats on the committee were not impressed. Murray’s office released this statement: “After an initial review of the responses sent to committee members with less than 24 hours before the scheduled vote, staff has identified a number of critical questions about Ms. DeVos’ financial disclosure to the committee and other areas that have not been answered to anywhere close to satisfaction. Sen. Murray does not believe that members of the committee have enough information about Ms. DeVos’ opaque finances, conflicts of interest, and other issues — and she once again urges Chairman Alexander to postpone this vote until all reasonable questions are answered fully and appropriately.”
