Fla. Board of Education bans of diversity, equity, inclusion programs in state colleges

The Florida Board of Education said Wednesday it has implemented “strict regulations” limiting the use of public funds for Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) programs, activities, and policies in the Florida College System.

The new rule defines DEI as as “any program, campus activity, or policy that classifies individuals on the basis of race, color, sex, national origin, gender identity, or sexual orientation and promotes differential or preferential treatment of individuals on the basis of such classification.”

It also prohibits the 28 schools within the system from “promoting or engaging in political or social activism.”
