Florida prisoners will have new education opportunities under a law signed by Gov. Rick Scott. 

Several more bills are headed to Gov. Scott. They include a “watered-down” overhaul of state-run Citizens Property Insurance and a controversial measure allowing Florida students to take online classes from out-of-state providers.


The Florida Virtual School is bracing for an impending budget cut as a result of changes in the state funding formula. The move also has school districts on edge as they also eye a drop in funding as a result of changes proposed in the state’s 2013 budget plan.
