The American Folklore Society has signed on to two statements—one from the American Council of Learned Societies and the other by the American Historical Association—opposing Florida House Bill 999, which allows political appointees unprecedented oversight of day-to-day educational decisions.

HB 999 is a frontal attack on principles of academic freedom in the state’s public colleges and universities, with dire consequences for their teaching, research, and financial well-being.
