The Florida Board of Education announced a ban on “Critical Race Theory” in Public Schools earlier today.
Florida Governor Ron DeSantis said “Florida’s education system exists to create opportunity for our children. Critical Race Theory teaches kids to hate our country and to hate each other. It is state-sanctioned racism and has no place in Florida schools.”
Florida has blasted the far-left philosophy, saying “The woke class wants to teach kids to hate each other, rather than teaching them how to read, but we will not let them bring nonsense ideology into Florida’s schools.”
“As the Governor of Florida, I love this state, and I love my country,” he added. “I find it unthinkable that there are other people in positions of leadership in the federal government who believe that we should teach kids to hate our country. We will not stand for it here in Florida. I’m proud that we are taking action today to ensure our state continues to have the greatest educational system in the nation.”
Appearing on Fox News last week DeSantis says he will ban “any departure from accurate history,” and will not support any Republican candidate for school board who supports critical race theory or mandatory masking of children.
