Florida governor proposes ‘bill of rights’ to protect college students against strict COVID policies

  • Florida Governor Ron DeSantis has proposed a “bill of rights” to protect college students’ rights with respect to coronavirus guidelines.
  • The “bill of rights” would protect students from being thrown out of college for socializing and gathering in groups.

The governor of Florida has proposed a college “bill of rights” that would protect students from 12 public universities in Florida from facing consequences for socializing.

Governor Ron DeSantis announced he’s willing to consider a “bill of rights” to ensure college students would be able to enjoy themselves during the semester.

This announcement was in conjunction with his decision to move Florida to Phase 3 of its reopening plan, where he suspended mask fines, and reopened bars and restaurants across the state.

In a news conference, DeSantis said “he personally think[s] it’s incredibly draconian that a student would get potentially expelled for going to a party. That’s what college kids do.”

Florida college student Alejandro Puga told Campus Reform that he believes this is a step in the right direction.
