DeSantis is laser-focused on making sure students in Florida get educated without being indoctrinated by any specific ideologies or inaccuracies that some on the woke left want to peddle to children. The state acted reasonably in working with the publishers to make sure the textbooks adhered to state law and will continue to do so moving forward.
DeSantis is doing a disservice to students and teachers by limiting what can be learned and taught in Florida schools. This mass rejection of social studies textbooks comes on the heels of the expansion of the law banning the teaching of gender identity and sexuality, and the establishment of restrictions on what can be taught about race and racism. These policies do the opposite of educating Florida’s children and set a dangerous precedent.
