Florida’s graduating seniors shouldn’t face completely different guidelines
Present college students, present guidelines
Graduation on the line? | April 26
The state public universities in Florida have the coverage that college students are to comply with the insurance policies which can be in place on the time they enter their program. If commencement necessities change throughout their tenure, it impacts the new college students, however not these already enrolled. That will be thought of an ex submit facto state of affairs, and never solely can be educationally unethical, however probably unlawful as properly. Excessive colleges within the state ought to comply with the identical coverage. Altering horses in the course of the stream for highschool youngsters’ commencement necessities is harsh and merciless.

Florida surgeon general gets caught cherry picking COVID-19 vaccine data | Editorial, April 14
There are few issues extra contemptuous and vilified in well being care than the altering of scientific findings in analysis or public well being research. Dr. Joseph Ladapo, the Florida surgeon basic, omitted a key truth from the ultimate model of his well being steerage on mRNA COVID-19 vaccines — that catching COVID might improve the probabilities of a cardiac-related demise far more than getting the vaccine. His evaluation concluded that mRNA COVID-19 vaccines pose a major well being danger to males ages 18 to 39. That discovering contradicts the positions and scientific information and research achieved by the Facilities for Illness Management and Prevention and the American Academy of Pediatrics. The advice is a shame and risk to the residents of Florida. Altering scientific information in a public well being examine shouldn’t be solely thought of a scientific and moral violation, it might even be in opposition to the legislation in Florida.
Dr. Ladapo’s research carried out by way of “his” Florida Division of Well being have been neither peer reviewed (commonplace process for a public well being examine) nor revealed in moral medical literature. They have been merely posted on-line by “his” division and offered as “information releases” to Florida residents. I emphasize “his” to replicate the truth that it isn’t “his” division in any respect, nor for that matter, the governor’s division. It’s “our” Division of Well being we’re speaking about.
