DeSantis says critical race theory won’t be taught in Florida schools, increases funding for civics education

Yet another difference between blue and red states: the way schools are increasingly attempting to shame white students for their race by teaching them to hate their American heritage through curricula like critical race theory.

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis said this week that critical race theory would not be taught in Florida’s schools as he proposed a boost funding for civics education in the state.

DeSantis proposed a $106 million increase in civics education funding for Florida students after the state received its share of the money from President Joe Biden’s $1.9 trillion COVID relief bill.

Specifically under the proposal, teachers who get credentialed in civics would get a $3,000 bonus, and money would be earmarked for training and curriculum development statewide.

No place for critical race theory

Curriculum would be prohibited from including critical race theory because it is harmful to students and teaches them to “hate” each other and their country, DeSantis said.

“Let me be clear: There is no room in our classrooms for things like critical race theory,” he said while announcing the proposal. “Teaching kids to hate their country and to hate each other is not worth one red cent of taxpayer money.”

Instead, Florida “will invest in actual, solid, true curriculum and we will be a leader in the development and implementation of a world-class civics education,” he said.

Promoters of critical race theory say it is necessary to reduce bias against people of color in the U.S. and that it tells the true story of America’s founding and the role slavery played.

1619 Project not historically accurate

But historians have said that the theory, as described in the New York Times’ 1619 Project, is not historically accurate.

Furthermore, many believe it actually harms race relations and fosters resentments between racial groups that don’t need to be there.

With almost the entire government being dominated by Democrats who subscribe to critical race theory and other ideas like it, states are going to have to follow DeSantis’s example to protect students and others from being brainwashed into following those beliefs.

Conservative state leaders can still fight back against radical left federal policies at this point, unless the federal government takes so much power away from them that they are forced to go along with these harmful ideas.

  1. Great! Thank you, Governor DeSantis, for standing up to the radicals! They are ruining our country with their ridiculous programs that are dividing us! Schools are especially being targeted as early as kindergarten with race-based radical programs. I shutter to think what this country will be twenty years from now. We conservatives hope that President Trump is re-elected to set the country right again!

  3. The saddest part of this hate mongering supposed theory of educating children to despise the thought they are white and could be the reason blacks are below most whites in education, financial gains, and the ability to become great citizens, is tragic! It has caused whites, who never considered the color of ones skin, to be leery of blacks they always considered friends. Because of the awful things done by BLM monsters who were allowed to destroy other peoples belonging, rob, and kill(sometimes their own ethnic people!), who can trust other blacks who happen to be governors, mayors, and city officials and they too allow the extremes, to use plain old common sense to govern their states, cities, principalities?!? THIS IS TOTAL ISANITY and governor DeSantis sees and understands what is happening!!

  4. Who came out with this idea are we living in China that the government is the only power that dictates what children learn ,if this shameful idea progresses than we all can forget United States of America it will be know as Divided States of America.

  5. Thank God (and our vote) for Governor DeSantis!! He is strong, Christian, loves Florida and America, and best of all, he’s very smart as our leader. He’s been way ahead of the rest of the U.S.A. in bringing us through this awful C-19 so-called pandemic. He doesn’t buckle under biden, fauci, or the dems/libs, and he has the most loyal supporters of all states! Florida truly made the right decision in electing him. I hope he sticks around for another term and considers the Presidency in 2028. My dream is DeSantis/Noem 2028!!
