Florida Prepaid College Program - Deal or No Deal?

Posted by Joe Manausa on Sunday, March 2nd, 2008 at 8:15pm.

Well, I'm back in Tallahassee having survived a great real estate convention in Orlando. Joe Manausa Real Estate does a great job "pushing" information, technology, systems, and opportunities to its real estate brokers and agents. We are very fortunate to be part of the Joe Manausa Real Estate team.

A newspaper article caught my attention, as it centers on a topic that I have blogged about quite often in the past...The Florida Prepaid Tuition problem.

Shannon Colavecchio-Van Sickler, St. Petersburg Times Staff Writer, writes a great summary of the problems being faced by the families already enrolled in this program (that's 1.2M families!). You can link to the St. Petersburg Times article in case you missed it in the actual paper.

I'm curious about how many readers have enrolled in this program and if they are concerned about getting their enrollees into a school when the time comes. As I have written in the past, I believe that Florida higher education can be play a significant role in the housing market recovery.
