Ron DeSantis is on the war path.
He’s fighting back against leftist nonsense one issue at a time.
Now DeSantis is getting rid of another horrible problem in Florida schools.
The war for America’s schools is barely underway.
Leftists completely dominate the educational landscape, but they encroached too far and woke up tens of millions of parents around the country.
Reporters and academics exposed the neo-Marxist ideology of Critical Race Theory (CRT), but the Left has many tactics.
Florida Governor Ron DeSantis recently signed the Parental Rights in Education bill into law, which aims to beat back the incursion of radical gender ideology and queer theory into education.
But these insane ideas are spreading to all disciplines.
For example, DeSantis’s administration rejected a good chunk of math textbooks because they were filled with CRT concepts.
The Daily Wire reported that “the Florida Department of Education announced on Friday that after a recent review, 41% of proposed K-12 mathematics books intended for use during the 2022-2023 public school year did not meet state academic standards due to their apparent inclusion of Critical Race Theory principles and other controversial approaches to education.”
One example of CRT-infused math could be a word problem that describes a politically charged scenario such as a police shooting or a protest rally.
The Florida DoE said in a statement:
“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 highest number of books rejected were for grade levels K-5, where an alarming 71 percent were not appropriately aligned with Florida standards or included prohibited topics and unsolicited strategies.”
SEL is the latest Trojan horse used to sneak in radical ideas about diversity, inclusivity, and equity, also known as the DIE religion.
The Collaborative for Academic, Social Emotional Learning (CASEL) described SEL as follows:
“SEL advances educational equity and excellence through authentic school-family-community partnerships to establish learning environments and experiences that feature trusting and collaborative relationships, rigorous and meaningful curriculum and instruction, and ongoing evaluation. SEL can help address various forms of inequity and empower young people and adults to co-create thriving schools and contribute to safe, healthy, and just communities.”
It includes the same weasel words as the Left’s other neo-Marxist initiatives.
Regarding the textbooks, DeSantis said in a statement, “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.”
The more parents find out what leftist teachers and administrators are doing, the less they like it.
Parents cannot let up in the battle to save the schools.
