Stop Governor Scott’s Cuts to Classrooms

Governor Scott’s proposed cut to public education is $3.3 Billion dollars.  This is catastrophic.  His plan will cause massive teacher layoffs, school closings and the elimination of all but the most basic core courses.  Worst of all, our children will be very badly hurt.

FundEducationNow.org  is deeply concerned that Governor Scott is ignoring his paramount duty by choosing to slash billions from defenseless school children who have a constitutional right to a free, high-quality, adequately funded, efficient, safe and uniform public education.
Governor Scott wants to fund public education for the low wage, service economy he plans for Florida.    Signing this petition means you will send a message to Florida’s politicians that Governor Scott’s budget stabs at the heart of our children’s schools and dooms any prospects of true economic recovery.
Florida’s children are the key to our long term economic stability.  High-quality public education is a job creator not a funding burden. Governor Scott must embrace his paramount duty to invest in the real future of this state – the students.

Fund Education Now.org is permanent grass roots, non-partisan group created by parents to inspire and empower voters to advocate on behalf of Florida's children. We believe that Florida's public education crisis is about more than money. Parents, long silent on this subject, must now stand up and lead the discussion and clearly articulate what we, the end-users of public education, want and expect for our kids and our state.

  1. Of all the things in the FL budget the one thing you shouldn’t even be going near is EDUCATION! The teachers of this state need a raise; their dedication is taken for granted. I’m tired of hearing about teachers having to reach into their own pockets to pay for educational materials for their students! We, the people of FL, should be funding the materials and voting the teachers a raise! Why is it that most older Floridians believe one of two things: 1) The Lottery will pay for the children’s education & 2) I’ve already paid to put my own kids through school; there is no reason for me to pay for someone elses kid’s education? Thoughts like those are what keep the children of this state behind 44 other states in our Union! FUND EDUCATION NOW before it’s too late!

  2. Please fund education. It is our country future. Why dont you leave our kids alone. You can cut in some many things, but you always targeting education. Since Gov. Bush got the first year in office he started this trend, he is not longer governor but still he is behind this. Please stay away Gov.Bush.

  3. It’s very disappointing. Good jobs and good business doesn’t happen without good education. Now who’s destroying our children’s future?
