famu marching logo*(Via Washington Post) – Gov. Rick Scott’s active involvement–some would say meddling–into the hazing scandal at Florida A&M University could cost the school its accreditation.

Scott has admonished school leaders in the wake of the hazing scandal that led to the death of drum major Robert Champion Jr.. He also urged the university’s board of trustees to suspend the school’s president, James Ammons.

But the accrediting body in charge of Florida and 10 other states, the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools, warned Scott if the trustees made the decision with his suggestion in mind the school could be in trouble, reports Black America Web.

The board stipulates that the university’s decisions should be made without influence of politics or religion.
