As Gov. Ron DeSantis targets “trendy ideology” in higher education, his administration is asking state colleges and universities for information about resources they are putting into activities related to diversity, equity and inclusion, and critical race theory.
State Rep. Angie Nixon, a Democrat from Jacksonville, blasted the directive in a Twitter post.
“In the so-called free state of Florida under Gov. DeSantis, the freedom to run (diversity, equity and inclusion) programs at public colleges and universities appears next on the radar for destruction. Nothing is safe and it’s sickening,” Nixon tweeted.
