What else is in DeSantis’ list about how DeStroy is a state?
Well, there was an executive order banning the most popular critical race theory of Republicans in 2021. Not a single area in Florida was studying CRT, but now they won’t do it any more.
However, DeSantis didn’t stop at preventing teachers from teaching something they didn’t teach. Because Florida is just one of several states where Republicans have suggested opening teachers and librarians in schools if they say anything or carry any book that someone else could interpret as CRT teaching. This is an advertisement for an open season for teachers and a backdoor attempt to completely destroy public education. While they were at it, the Republicans also destroyed the state’s disability education. It took them six minutes and only one speaker.
Why use the CRT as an excuse to achieve the long-established Republican goal of replacing public education with for-profit schools? In 2022, Republicans can use racism as a pretext to cover up their true motives, because now racism is cool with Republican voters.
The legislature is also due to come in Florida, and wants to extend the ban on teaching American history of racism to colleges and universities. That should do wonders for the state’s academic environment. Given that the University of Florida has already banned professors from testifying in a lawsuit against DeSantis, don’t be surprised if they create the new Bull Connors Chair for White Studies.
If that wasn’t enough to sue people, Florida Republicans also proposed a law, similar to the law from Texas, that would allow anyone to sue people if they suspected a woman was trying to secure an abortion. Or if anyone is trying to have an abortion. Or anyone who provides transportation for the possibility of an abortion.
To rub an extra bucket of salt into the wounds of public education, another bill would take the existing nonpartisan races of local school boards and force them to be downright partisan. Currently, all school board candidates are working together in a party-free gathering. A new bill would force candidates to declare their affiliation with a party to register as a candidate for the school board. head The Florida Republican Party is the sponsor of this bill.
When it comes to promoting the big lie, DeSantis does his best too. Despite repeated reviews and investigations that turned up nothing — other than five residents of The Villages retired community who doubled their votes for Trump — DeSantis would at least spend $5.7 million to establish an “Electoral Crimes Bureau” with an initial cadre of 45 investigators. The qualifications to investigate non-existent crimes are not specified, but the best way to get one of these “jobs” is nepotism.
Finally, DeSantis is pushing for something Republicans in a number of states are also demanding: a decrease in transparency. It’s not like DeSantis didn’t really do a built-in job of tweaking statistics, hiding data, and plotting against the best interests of the state’s citizens, but he’d really like it if he didn’t have to work so hard.
you know. Like his investigators at the Election Crimes Bureau.
