Monarch High School students conduct a walkout on Tuesday, Nov. 28, 2023 after the principal, James Cecil, and other staff members were removed from their positions pending an investigation. The reassignments occurred because a female transgender student had been playing volleyball at the school in Coconut Creek, Florida.

On the South Floria Roundup, we discussed the Broward County controversy over whether a transgender student can play girls’ volleyball, WLRN's new podcast Bright Lit Place and Big Sugar’s role in blocking the cleanup of one of our key eco-treasures. Plus we examine how Puerto Rico’s mortality rate is going up as its healthcare system tumbles down.
