Gov. Rick Scott is really pushing to improve Florida's education system during the two-month session, which is now underway. But not everyone is satisfied with how the state is treating schools.
Some local college students are making their voices heard Wednesday, gathering for a protest at the Marshall Center on campus.
The students are planning a rally and march. They're upset about tuition hikes and budget cuts.
Students called today a "day of action for education rights." The Democratic Society is hosting the rally, and the group is calling for all students to join.
They say they're angry with the university-imposed tuition hikes, free speech attacks, corporate influence on the board of trustees and cuts to progressive studies.
There will be speakers at the rally outside the Marshall Center, and then students will march to the Patel Center for Global Solutions to present the president of the university's office with a "list of demands."
Those include: An independent audit of the university, and they want tuition hikes and cuts to progressive studies done away with.
The rally was set to begin at noon.
