Florida Gov. Rick Scott has proposed an increase public school spending by $542 million, the Miami Herald reports.

The proposed budget would bring education spending to a record high of $18.84 billion.

Scott, a Republican who is running for reelection this year against former Gov. Charlie Crist, is expected to unveil his budget proposal on Wednesday.

“Our students deserve the best quality education, and this funding will help to ensure that every degree achieved is followed by a great career,” Scott told the Herald.

Florida Democratic Party Chair Allison Tant called the budget boost Scott's “latest reelection campaign stunt.”
