Florida's new education commissioner says changes will be coming to state-funded tutorial programs after a Tampa Bay Times investigation uncovered abuse and fraud in the system.
From the Times report:
After nearly a decade, Florida last year won a waiver from the federal law that requires private tutoring. The state was set to shut down the program when lobbyists for the tutoring industry stepped in. They convinced state lawmakers to keep the money flowing.
Florida has spent $192 million on private tutoring firms in the past two years.
