‘This is our future’: UCF students join statewide student protest of DeSantis’ ‘dystopian’ education policies

Students at the University of Central Florida in Orlando, the state’s largest public university by enrollment, joined a statewide walkout on Thursday in protest of education policies and directives prioritized by Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis that critics say are having chilling effects.
“We’re standing up against this,” said Olivia Solomon, a student organizer with UCF’s March for Our Lives chapter, who helped organize the UCF walkout Thursday. “We’re fighting for our faculty, for our education, and for the rights of trans students.”
