Florida could miss out on $2.7 billion in federal education funding

Florida also is still fighting for about $2.7 billion in education funding in the stimulus package. To qualify for the money, states must fund schools at least at the level they did in the 2005-06 school year. Florida"s state funding is now below that level. However, U.S. Education Secretary Arne Duncan could waive that provision for states that have had serious revenue declines, as Florida has. Crist has already asked him to do just that, although it"s uncertain when that decision gets made.
