Florida’s Parental Rights Bill signed into law by Governor Ron DeSantis

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis signed the contentious “Parental Rights in Education” bill into law on Monday, outlawing “age-appropriate or developmentally appropriate” classroom discussion or instruction on sexual orientation and identity in kindergarten to third grade or older grades.

Gov. DeSantis signed Florida’s “Parental Rights in Education” bill into law, despite Democrats and their media supporters attacking him for backing the bill.

In kindergarten through third grade, the bill prevents teachers from teaching about “sexual orientation” or “gender identity” in the classroom.

At a press conference at the Classical Preparatory School in Spring Hill, Florida, DeSantis stated, “We not only realize that parents have a right to be involved, but we also urge that parents have a right to be involved.”

Actors repeated the word “gay” as the audience applauded at the Oscars on Sunday night, mocking the bill. “They won’t confess that they support a lot of the things that we’re trying to protect them against,” he continued.

“If the folks who put up degenerates like Harvey Weinstein as exemplars and heroes and as all that, if those are the types of people who are opposing us on parents’ rights, I wear it like a badge of honor,” DeSantis told his opponents in Hollywood.

DeSantis signed a law last week that will limit school board members to four years on the job and subject most material in district libraries and classrooms to government oversight and approval.

He remarked about CB/HB 1467, “perhaps the strongest curriculum transparency legislation in the world,” during a news conference in Daytona Beach, as resistance to “indoctrination in the school system.”

According to the bill, anyone involved in the selection of library resources for a K-12 district school must first complete a training program designed by the Florida Department of Education.

As per DeSantis, the bill will allow parents to “protect their children’s education” by ensuring that instructional, library, and reading list materials meet state standards.
