FUNDING OF EDUCATION IN GEORGIA                                 PIE CHART OF FY2015 BUDGET  
Funding for education in Georgia is a priority for the Georgia General Assembly and the Governor. I am very proud that Republican Governor Nathan Deal and the Republican majority state House and Senate have funded K-12 education in Georgia in the Amended FY2014 budget at $7,545,784,627.00 of the total $20,234,238,575.00 budget.

Furthermore, of the $320m additional funds available in the amended FY2014 budget at mid-year, $183m has been appropriated for QBE.

In the FY2015 Budget approved by the General Assembly, the total funding for education in Georgia amounts to  $10,651,567,466, or 54% of the total $20,836,744,620 fiscal year budget. That includes  almost $8b ($7,951,720,712) for K-12 education, alone.
