DeSantis vows to keep critical race theory out of Florida schools

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) continues to be one of the leading opponents of the so-called critical race theory (CRT).

In his latest effort to quash the progressive ideology, DeSantis has again vowed to end the teaching of critical race theory in Florida schools, the Daily Caller reportsThe Florida governor denounced CRT in a press conference Friday.

There, DeSantis revealed that the Florida Board of Education is looking to address the problem in an official capacity.

“The Florida Board of Education is meeting and they are addressing this,” the Republican governor said, according to Breitbart. “And, I told them they need to address this, and we’ve got to do it.”

“First of all, it’s offensive”

DeSantis went on to call the idea that taxpayers should fund a statewide public school curriculum that includes CRT “offensive.”

“I mean, first of all, it’s offensive,” he charged, as Breitbart reported. “Here we are celebrating tax savings — it’s offensive to the taxpayer that they would be asked to fund critical race theory, that they would be asked to fund teaching kids to hate their country and to hate each other,” DeSantis said.

According to the Daily Caller, DeSantis says CRT is “based on false history,” including points that, in his words, “very liberal historians say [are] not supported by the facts.”

“We need to make sure civics is a priority, but it needs to be taught accurately. It needs to be taught in a fact-based way. Not an ideological-based way, and if we have to play whack-a-mole all over this state, stopping this critical race theory, we will do it,” he vowed. “We’ll be taking action, don’t you worry.”

“Actual, solid, true curriculum”

In addition to making headlines for his popularity nationwide ahead of the 2024 White House race, DeSantis has made a name for himself as one of the most prominent Republicans in the battle against the teaching of CRT in America’s schools.

Friday’s presser was just the latest time the governor has denounced CRT; DeSantis first announced that he would move to ban Florida teachers and school staff from preaching CRT in public schools back in March, as the Daily Caller reported.

At the time, DeSantis said that Florida will instead focus on an “actual, solid, true curriculum and we will be a leader in the development and implementation of a world-class civics education.”

DeSantis has also unveiled a $106 million proposal that would bolster civics and literacy education in Florida schools, including by instituting a new civics education training program for teachers, according to reports.
