Fla. Governor Rick Scott Invests in Early Learning Education

Florida Governor Rick Scott is investing in early learning education.

The Governor is proposing 1.1 billion dollars in state funding for early child education and care programs.

This will provide a $100 increase in budget for each student.

Officials say voluntary pre-k classes offer a higher quality school readiness curriculum with qualified staff.

"We're looking at high quality programs for four year olds with developmentally appropriate practices. This is a perfect example of a program who uses practices who but gets kids interested excited and curious,"

Governor Scott says Florida ranks first in the nation to access pre-kindergarten.
