BOCA RATON, Fla. -- The state is considering whether to appeal a judge's decision against a law that requires Florida-resident U.S. citizens to pay out-of-state tuition if they depend on parents who are illegal immigrants.
The State Board of Education has the issue on its agenda for a meeting Tuesday in Boca Raton.
U.S. District Judge K. Michael Moore in Miami ruled public colleges and universities cannot charge such dependent students higher out-of-state tuition. The board oversees state colleges.
The panel also is scheduled to decide on appealing an administrative law judge's decision against a new teacher evaluation plan and whether two failing charter schools should be closed.
