Crist releases education budget

Gov. Charlie Crist is in his hometown of St. Petersburg today to unveil his $22.7 billion budget recommendation for education.

The budget includes federal, state and local funding and would be an increase of more than $500 million from the current fiscal year. The proposal calls for an average of $7,045 for each of the 2.6 million K-12 students in Florida.

The proposal includes $433 million from the Seminole Tribe of Florida, some of which would come from a yet-to-be-approved gambling compact with the tribe.
