PORTSMOUTH, OH – Following Governor Ron Desantis’ request that all publicly funded Florida colleges and universities disclose their spending on Critical Race Theory and Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion, 28 Florida colleges and universities (including six medical schools) announced a ban on anything that “compels belief in critical race theory.”
Inside Higher Ed reported that the presidents represent the 28 colleges that make up the Florida College System, which includes community and four-year state colleges.
Folks, this is good news in the woke war. Bye cancel culture – it wasn’t nice knowing ya.
The presidents of 28 different colleges in Florida announced a ban on anything that “compels belief in critical race theory.”
Kudos to the 28 bold leaders in the Sunshine State.
The presidents, in their joint statement, stated they “will ensure that all initiatives, instruction, and activities do not promote any ideology that suppresses intellectual and academic freedom, freedom of expression, viewpoint diversity, and the pursuit of truth in teaching and learning.”
“Specifically, by February 1, 2023, the FCS presidents commit to having fully evaluated and removed any institutional instruction, training, and policies opposed to the forms of discrimination described in this statement.”
