DeSantis wins again!
While Oregon, California, Massachusetts, and New York may focus on teaching girls that they can feel like boys and vice versa, DeSantis is busy preparing students to be actually competitive against the Chinese and others growing up in nations who don’t feel compelled to destroy gender the same way they’ve destroyed families.
First, DeSantis advocated for the abolition of mask mandates in schools.
Secondly, DeSantis advocated for the abolition of CRT in schools.
Thirdly, DeSantis advocated for the inclusion of financial literacy in schools, a skill that Democrats tend to emphasize the least for obvious reasons.
Fourthly, DeSantis went to war with Disney for daring to ban discussion of LGBTQ+ pet causes in kindergarten.
Now, DeSantis has circled back (a heck of a lot better than Psaki) to his anti-CRT initiative by blocking 41 percent of math textbooks that are really just pro-CRT pamphlets in disguise.
Specifically, the Florida Department of Education (FDOE) rejected 41 percent of math textbooks submitted for approval for use in public schools.
“Reasons for rejecting textbooks included references to Critical Race Theory (CRT), inclusions of Common Core, and the unsolicited addition of Social Emotional Learning (SEL) in mathematics,” the Department noted.
Textbooks proposed for kindergarten through fifth grade were amongst the worst of all, as “an alarming 71 percent were not appropriately aligned with Florida standards or included prohibited topics and unsolicited strategies.”
Democrats sure do like to start their sick indoctrination early on in life, it would appear.
The FDOE noted that efforts to pervade children’s classrooms with anti-white ideology is even more disturbing considering that woke textbook companies were already informed to not pollute elementary school subjects any further.
“It is unfortunate that several publishers, especially at the elementary school grade levels, have ignored this clear communication and have attempted to slip rebranded instructional materials based on Common Core Standards into Florida’s classrooms, while others have included prohibited and divisive concepts such as the tenants of CRT or other unsolicited strategies of indoctrination – despite FDOE’s prior notification,” the FDOE observed.
DeSantis chimed in to support the FDOE, noting how some textbook companies seemed the most interested in publishing an ideology of hate rather than teach kids the basics of 2 + 2.
Then again, since Democrats are now arguing even numbers are as subjective as gender (just see the latest attacks on math classes out west), it’s really no surprise.
“It seems that some publishers attempted to slap a coat of paint on an old house built on the foundation of Common Core, and indoctrinating concepts like race essentialism, especially, bizarrely, for elementary school students. I’m grateful that Commissioner Corcoran and his team at the Department have conducted such a thorough vetting of these textbooks to ensure they comply with the law,” DeSantis remarked.
Parents are also deeply disturbed.
“It’s disturbing, borderline authoritarian, and definitely censorship,” Sarah Leonardi noted in remarks to the Sun Sentinel, “notably, it denies the existence of much of our student population. If state leadership made decisions with children in mind, they wouldn’t be engaging in these fallacious culture wars at all.”
