AHA member Jeremy C. Young (PEN America) appeared on MSNBC’s Mehdi Hasan Show to discuss Florida House Bill 999, which would place the teaching and learning of many topics, especially those related to race and gender, under strict state control and severely limit the academic freedom of students and educators at public higher education institutions. “This is a bill that would end academic freedom in higher education not just in certain course areas, but at all times, on all campuses, everywhere,” Young said. “It really is a bill that would make Florida the place where public higher education goes to die.”
