Statement from Florida Board of Education Secretary Jim Horne Regarding the University of South Florida's Decision to Terminate the Employment of Dr. Sami Al-Arian

"I support the decision by President Judy Genshaft to take action that is in the best interest of the students, faculty and staff of the University of South Florida. It is both the right and the responsibility of the university president and its board of trustees to respond to events that threaten the well-being of the institution and the university community."
