Stimulus Saving Teachers

July 15th, 2009 by flanews

Thousands of teaching jobs are being spared and 700-thousand unemployed Floridians are receiving benefits thanks to federal stimulus dollars.

Governor Charlie Crist met with state agency heads to discuss how the federal money is being spent. So far the state has paid out 534 million stimulus dollars to the states unemployed. Crist also credits the stimulus dollars for saving education.

I think its pretty incredible that 26-thousand teachers will continue to be able to work for Floridas children because of these additional monies and thats really the point. This is to help people. This is to help education system. To help people with health care needs and its the peoples money so they deserve it, said Crist.

Floridas stimulus spending is posted online. Since the state began posting the stimulus plans the site has received more than 750-thousand hits. The website is http://flarecovery.com/
