Many school districts in Florida oppose an education bill and the public school budget passed by the state legislature and signed by Governor Rick Scott; they say the education budget is only going up by 47 cents per student and that’s not nearly enough to keep pace.

April Griffin is a School Board member in Hillsborough County and that board met Tuesday afternoon.

Griffin is hosting a town hall meeting Wednesday at Greko Middle School at 6:30 p.m. to talk about school safety, the new education laws and school finances.
