Rick Scott cut over $1 billion in education funding, and millions from Florida’s universities

From The Florida Times-Union, 05/20/2013; Forbes, 04/23/2012:

Florida Governor Rick Scott signed the 2012 state budget at a Jacksonville elementary school, presumably to emphasize the budget’s inclusion of an additional $1 billion for education. That would be impressive, if not for the fact that last year he cut the state’s education budget by $1.3 billion. That’s like burning down someone’s house, replacing it with the wooden frame of a house and calling it progress.
