Cut it last...that rallying cry is being delivered to state lawmakers in the final ten days of the legislative session.
Deborah Gianoulis with Save Duval Schools tells Jacksonville's Morning News the budget can be balanced without cutting education spending.
But she stopped short of offering a specific alternative.
"Honestly, that is their job, that is what we send them for. But we are urging everybody in Jacksonville who cares about public education to call 10 friends, 10 people they know, to urge them to call those 10 legislators".
Gianoulis says there are ways around cutting education. She says education is the paramount duty of the state.
Governor Scott's budget proposal calls for a K-12 budget that is $1.75 billion less than the current education budget.
The House and Senate are several billions of dollars apart in these final days of the legislative session.
