ICE to boot international students

International students will be forced to leave the country if their fall semester classes are conducted fully online, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement announced this week.

Ron DeSantis last week eliminated state funding for online academic support services to colleges and universities, the State University System Board of Governors says it’s now working to keep “essential online and library services” afloat. “In light of the veto of the funds of Complete Florida Plus, we are in the process, working with the Florida College System, of identifying the essential online and library services for both systems,” a board spokesperson wrote EdScoop in an email.

Then all of a sudden when no one can go to campus for months on end, the only solution is to go online," said the Clayton Christensen Institute's Richard Price. Betsy Foresman has more on how universities are preparing for the future.

Jake has the details.
