Politifact: Gov McDonnell increases funding to education

ICYMI: Politifact- Democrat claims that Governor McDonnell's budget cuts public education are FALSE.

Wanted to be sure everyone saw this. Politifact looked at Democrat Donald McEachin's claims on the Governor's budget, and found them wanting.

From Politifact:

"McEachin, speaking on behalf of Democrats in the General Assembly, accused the governor of "cutting" education funding in his proposed two-year state budget.

"The math doesn't work for the Democrats here, as the net increase in state funding to public schools would be $497 million under McDonnell's plan...

"... [The Governor's budget] does not cut the overall state appropriation to public education nor the revenues localities use to pay their share for schools.

We rate McEachin's statement False."

Read the whole thing.
