HB 7069 includes a new academic requirement for Florida’s public colleges and universities – a civics literacy course

If Governor Scott signs the mammoth education policy bill HB 7069 into law, it will impose a new academic requirement to take a civics literacy course on students at Florida’s public colleges and universities.

The bill language offers the possibility of circumventing the course requirement by passing a test on civics knowledge.

Other than the civics requirement, HB 7069 is focused on the K-12 system.  A separate bill, SB 374, includes significant reforms for Florida’s postsecondary system.

The civics literacy bill language from HB 7069 is shown below.
