Miami-Dade County Mayor Carlos A. Gimenez statement regarding School Readiness Funding


(MIAMI, December 11, 2012) – We applaud Governor Scott’s decision to halt the implementation of the School Readiness Funding Formula that was announced earlier this year.  His call to establish a working group of stakeholders that can refine the formula and make it more equitable to communities throughout the state is in the best interest of the residents of Florida including small business owners, families and, most importantly, children.
