Florida Lottery money helps only a fraction for most counties’ schools


As of today, it has been reported by The Florida Lottery that it has given around $29 billion to schools since the late 1980s.

Although that is an extremely handsome amount of money, it is not exactly handled as one might think it would be. Even though the lottery is handing out about $100 million to education every month, there is apparently more to it than just giving money to the community

The lottery makes up very little of the district’s $1 billion budget despite how the campaign is portrayed, according to Lee County School District Superintendent Dr. Greg Adkins. “In terms of how many days we can operate the school district on it, it’s less than I can count on one hand,” said Dr. Adkins.

The funds are divided, then granted, to many different places and causes. Of the $640 million Lee County has received since 1987, all of it has been to the Lee County School District, colleges, scholarships, and school construction. Adkins says that a very small portion of that goes to the classroom. He stresses how the exchanging process actually is in terms of the truth.

“People don’t see the other side of that, it’s expense to administer, it’s expensive to pay the prizes and what actually comes back to the district is a small amount.”
