Corcoran announces cuts to Broward County Public Schools’ funding over face mask mandate
Florida Education Commissioner Richard Corcoran is following through with his threat to cut funding from Broward County Public Schools over the face mask mandate implemented when the 2021-22 school year began on Aug. 18.
Corcoran announced the Florida Department of Education will withhold funding equal to the salaries of the School Board of Broward County members salaries because a Florida Department of Health emergency rule requires a nonmedical opt-out for parents.
Corcoran is also implementing punitive funding cuts to Alachua County Public Schools. There are eight other school districts that have also remained defiant of Gov. Ron DeSantis’s July 30th executive order.
