DeSantis suing US Education Department over accreditation
Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis announced Thursday his administration is suing the U.S. Department of Education over college accreditation.
Education Secretary Miguel Cardona, among other officials in the Biden administration, are named in the suit.
Federal law states that private accrediting agencies can decide which universities and colleges are eligible for federal funding. These agencies give universities a standard of requirements they have to follow to maintain accreditation.
