DeSantis blasted Florida universities, and New College in particular, for their DEI initiatives. He also accused New College of teaching theories that have become major conservative talking points in recent years, including critical race theory and gender theories.

“The mission has been I think more into the DEI, CRT, the gender ideology rather than what a liberal arts education should be,” DeSantis said of New College.

Christopher Rufo, a conservative activist who DeSantis appointed to the New College board, joined the governor at Tuesday’s press conference. Rufo has been a leading critic of DEI, CRT and transgender policies.

A View From Spain

I’ve been fortunate to have spent much of the winter of 2019-2020 living along the southern coast of Spain.

To be clear, I really do have a life outside of economic monitoring, but for purposes of this piece I’ll focus on a small anecdotal contrast between how…
